9 degrees

Right now, that feels like a heat wave. Yesterday I think it got up into the 20's. High today of 14 degrees.



We had to have a friend come and plow out our driveway yesterday morning. It's about a 1/4 mile long - and had 4 to 5 foot drifts across it yesterday morning. Cold, snow and wind are not good combinations. Wish it had been that way this morning, then I wouldn't have had to drive to work:)


The chickens are wusses and will not go outside in the cold and the snow. The cat is a wus and goes out and turns around and comes right back in.

This is Midnight headed for the open back door of the house. He's turning into a real diva - does not like the snow on his paws or even on his person......Tyler might have had something to do with that trying to take him sledding with him last week......wish I had a video of that one!

I just keep saying spring is coming, spring is coming......and I am so glad I do not live out further west.......because to me, anything below 60 ish is cold!

That is so cold. We went to Gatlinburg Tn. for a visit and it got down to 7. We didn't have as much snow as that though. That has to make it seem colder. Stay warm.

I'm a wuss, too, because I'd turn around and come back in,too! lol!

I do love the idea of the sledding cat! It reminds me of Toonces(?) the driving cat from SNL several years ago.;)

I would be staying inside, too! It is wonderful that you have a neighbor that is willing to help out by plowing your driveway.

Stay warm!

I do know what 9 degrees is as that was our temps Saturday morning and now they're saying we may have snow tomorrow morning? I say, "yippee," but that's because I won't have to drive anywhere and it comes so rarely that it can still be fun.

Sledding with the cat sounds like a total blast. Too bad Midnight didn't enjoy it quite so much! He's obviously not heard of the bulldogs that skateboard?!

Stay warm & safe driving to you and yours these winter days. Spring IS coming.

It's warming up here too so many you're getting some of the warm weather from way up in Canada. Now if it would just stay.

We are foggy and cold here in eastern Utah. I live about 50 miles South of Colorado. I can understand what you are going through. This too shall pass.
