Just another Winter in Wisconsin

Someone mentioned to me that when the temperature is -10F (as it has seemed to be for the last week here), that you could go inside, stick your head in the freezer and it would be 30 degrees WARMER.

That is just wrong. So wrong.

But we are supposed to get a veritable heat wave tomorrow. We will reach freezing. A full 32 degrees F *above* zero.

My poor family was subjected to life with the two smaller D's this week. The two children who were not given heat sensors at birth, evidently. The two children who think that single degree temperatures are just perfect for skating, sledding, and generally playing in the snow.

It's not a bad way to grow up, actually.

And we are betting on who will be the first person to see someone in a short-sleeved T-shirt or shorts tomorrow. When the temps go up 40+ degrees in one day, people get a little crazy. I, myself, have gone running in shorts on the first 40 degree day of the spring. It just feels so much warmer than -10.

all I have to say:


It's bloody cold enough (high of 28 over the last 3 days) here in St. Louie.
