Too cold for school

Schools are closed today because of the cold.

I think it is -8 today but the wind chill is something like -35. That's instant frostbite.

I take back everything I said about embracing winter. On a day like today - one must HIDE from winter and CURSE it. It's soooo cold.

I plan on bundling up in front of the fire and doing nothing but whine about the weather this morning. There is ice on the *inside* of our windows.

Normally, the kids don't watch TV during the week. I think we shall be making an exception today. An all-day exception, perhaps.

Hot Cocoa, anyone?

Curses indeed. Watch TV. Hide. I do not envy you. It's low 30s here today (yesterday dropped from 68 to 40 in about 20 minutes, midday. Freakish).

I live in Vermont. So I get it. Try that peppery Aztec cocoa. It is warming in a whole new way...

Stay in. Get warm. Put in a movie.

Yep, never moving to WI. Thanks for the reality check.

A good day for a slumber party in front of a movie! Cocoa, popcorn, the works!
