Jan 23

Well, it got colder.  It was -3 when I got up this morning – too cold and too dry for there to be frost on the car.  And it’s supposed to get down to -9 tonight.  It’s really hard to keep the house warm in these temperatures, especially if the wind is blowing as it has been.  It’s even cold at the office.  And it’s supposed to remain this cold through next week at least.

I know that compared to northern areas like Toronto, Minnesota and Wisconsin, where I am may seem balmy, but for me, this is bitterly cold.  Thank heavens for wool sweaters, socks, mittens (2 layers), hats and scarves.

I sure hope the groundhog does not see his shadow in a little over a week.  I am more than ready for spring.
