It is so Cold, That....

**I had to let my car warm up for over 20 minutes this morning--and it still sounded like my engine was grinding.

**When I went to get my oil changed at my favorite garage this morning, they asked, "Are you waiting or did you want to come back?" My reply: "I'm not going anywhere. It's too cold."

**When I was about to leave the garage after the oil change, the service guy rubbed my front passenger tire up against the curb. It was so cold that this slight rub caused my tire to puncture!! I had to get a new tire (no cost to me, mind you).

**The windchill was a direct inversion of numbers from the temperature. It is -24 outside, and with the windchill, it's -42.

**Our heat is constantly cycling. We keep the house pretty cool (we have electric heat and electricity in our part of the woods is spendy!), but in weather like this, the heat is always kicking on.

**I may actually try to cuddle up to the Big Guy in bed. I'm not a cuddler, but in this instance, I just might.

**School was cancelled in many towns. Amy & her sister Katie got the day off. Lucky girls.

**You can make snow with boiling water. Don't believe me? Check this out:

I will now stop complaining about our 26-degree weather.

YOU have cold weather. Comparitively, we're just "chilly."

Stay warm. The electricity bill will be worth it.

I'm sure our cold is coming. CO has such crazy weather. We are having mid to high 50s through the weekend and 60s Monday & Tuesday. I know what this means. Snow in May.

I am very glad you enjoyed the video that we made the other day. Pretty darn cold. I saw someone do it on the weather channel and decided to do it myself. Totally mind blowing. As you can see by the barbeque in the foreground, we are always thinking warm thoughts in the winter. Looks like it will be about 17 degrees on Sat. Look out HEAT WAVE!

That is crazy cold. I supposed this the part where I should sit down and shut up about 6 degree temperatures?

Thankfully, we're back into the 30's and 40's now.
