17 Degrees - Holy Hypothermia !!!

That's right.
It was 17 degrees this morning. Only God knows what the windchill was. I had to send puppy out into that freezer to visit her great green potty! Of course, right now the yard looks more like hay than grass.

I'm sure those of you in the northern states are laughing at my wimpyness. I swear to you. Cold here is colder than cold where you are. (Or maybe any cold near me always seems colder than cold could possibly be anywhere else.) It makes the skin burn and the bones ache.

I would love to curl up in front of the fireplace with a hot cuppa anything and my writing notebooks or a good novel. Unfortunately, I have to run some errands and help my husband at the office for a while (It's tax season and he's a CPA). So staying home and keeping my tootsies toasty is out of the question. Damn.

Someone needs to hire new weatherpersons who will give us better weather.

I'm sending you "warm" thoughts now :)

17 degrees is cold compared to what you're used to. I hope the weather gets better soon :)

I'll send you warm thoughts. [A crackling fire. A fleece blanket. A cup of cocoa.]

Now, can somebody send me a snowblower?

I lived in Fargo, ND. And you're right, cold here is colder there. It's dry cold there... it's WET AND WINDY cold here. BIG DIFFERE
