Perfect Weather!

Yes, the 1 or 2 degrees it is right now with a wind chill of about -15, is perfect weather -- if you are Santa Claus, a polar bear or an Eskimo.

Being none of the above, I'm finding it to be less than optimal. Instead, I feel like the little brother in A Christmas Story. You know, the kid who couldn't put his arms down ... I'm one of those people who don't care how stupid it looks. Is it warm? That's all I care about on days like today.

A whole bunch of school districts canceled classes today. Didn't even see a school bus all the way in. All I could think last night when I saw the closed districts scrolling at the bottom of the TV screen was: Can they cancel work? Pleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaazzzzz!

I guess I should look on the bright side. there are other places that are colder. Like Chicago. North Dakota. Much of the northeast.

Yeah. I'll find some comfort in the fact that it's going to warm up soon. After all the sun is out, so that's going to help, right?

Not so much. It IS going to warm up. In fact, tomorrow I'm thinking short sleeves might be in order since we'll actually go above 20. But today? It's going to warm up to -- now get ready for this one --

8.

I'm one of those poor saps in North Dakota that woke up to -30*F or so. At least the wind chill isn't -55*F anymore!

We are supposed to get to 30*F or so next week. A 60*F temperature swing. Wowzas

I opended the back door this morning to let the dog out and when he felt the blast of cold air he backed up about 6 feet and looked at me like, "Are you kiddin me?! I ain't goin out there!!" I shoved him out the door and he wasted no time getting back in, where he parked himself in front of the space heater and couldn't be budged!

Ty'smom -- Yeah. And it was even BETTER this morning. Luckily, it looks like it ends here for a bit.

S&C -- I am SO sorry. Know that I found some comfort in the fact that others (like you) were COLDER! We are supposed to hit 40 tomorrow. I can't WAIT!

Jayne -- Can't blame him. I had the oven on to bake cookies last night and I left it on for a while. For a few minutes, I just opened the door and stood in front of it. :-)
