Wow! It's a whopping 21 degrees outside, with a wind chill of only 8.
Think I'll take the beagle for a walk before it gets cold again.


If it's like this in December, I am dreading January!

7. We're supposed to get snow tonight
and at least a dusting every day next week. I'm not liking this at all.

9. It was about 49 today, and cloudy.
I really love the cooler weather we get in winter, or what passes for winter here.

I was out and about all day, puts me in the holiday feeling.

I have my wood burning stove going, and a big pot of soup cooking on top for tomorrow.

That is why I really like this time of year.

Tomorrow we will finish the tree and all the lights inside and out.

Maybe make some cookies also.

Stay warm. :hug:

14. My brother's like that. All excited because he can go snow-shoeing.
Minnesotans are a strange breed.

Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 08:55 PM by whistler162

I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU ARE GETTING!!!!!;} 21 hear also and 16 after the wind chill figured in.

Now if it is heading West-East to New York. I will be suitably sad of your plight!

16. 16 here, windchill of 4. Had to run to the store earlier,
it was awful walking across the parking lot with the wind in our faces.

I'm worried about January too. Our heating bill is going to be awful.
