Afternoon folkz. I was planning on staying inside today but forgot I had an appointment with my heart doctor. We did that, stopped at the bank then the grocery store, brought everything home so it wouldn't freeze in the car then back out for lunch. Home and the temps are dropping like a rock in water and is now down to about -3 without the wind chill. Sharon is making apple pies and bread pudding and I am drooling while setting in front of the computer. YUM! Thought I was going to get to stay in the rest of the week but the doctor said more tests tomorrow and then later next week. I ordered a balaclava and heated gloves as I about freeze out in the cold while snow blowing the sidewalks. Balaclava fits and gloves run on AA batteries and they work very good. We will see how they perform with the next snow fall. :D :D :D

Oh ,I'm sooooo mad. Just received this email from Zappy.

All this talk about snow, cold, record breaking lows, dangerous wind chills...... it's SO depressing. Multi car pile ups, interstate closers. I just can't take it anymore, so sad, so terrible, that's it, I'm going to the pool. Hold my calls.

-19.3°f this am, a noticable warm-up from yesterday's low. :wink:
Another day of hibernation for me, so I should be able to get the rest of the drywall & durock done.

Morning group. Temps in the - category this morning so wind chill is in the Bbbrrr range. Off to the doctor's office then maybe have lunch before we return. Blueberry Bread Pudding and Apple Custard pies in the fridge made with Truvia sugar substitute so they won't kill my sugar level. No plans for any outside activity today but the weekend is looking good with temps in the upper 40's or lower 50's. Keep warm humans... your doggos and felines too. :D :D :D

Hi. Woke up yesterday and it was 7 degrees! But got up to the 20s by the afternoon. Snow covering the ground this morning and it's; still coming down. I think we are on track for some additional bad weather tonight. Let's see how it goes. bp

Finished all the sign stuff and had a little time left over to finish the drywall/Durock installing. Time for pizza with the Kids/Grandkids.
Got up to 22.5°f today. :idea:

Been hearing bad things about the weather back east, now they say 40s & 50s ?? That'll mean flooding with that much snow on the ground. What did you do to tick off momma nature so bad ?
Anyway stay safe out there gang.
