My car looks like a giant snowball this morning.  It is still snowing heavily and we are to get several more inches before the below zero temps start moving in this afternoon.  I am in the hibernating mode with sweats and sweatshirt on this morning.  This is a no makeup day so I look rather like the wicked witch of the west.  I am doing nothing but waiting out the storm and praying that my furnace and power stay on.

Stay warm.  Stay safe and be happy!!

  3. blessings and happy new year.
    We've been dealing with ice storms, -18, -23, -25 Celsius temperatures here. It has not been easy. Friday morning was so cold i was chilled to the bone within minutes of being outside. It was a beast to maneuver with public transit, God was merciful and for once all buses, trains and streetcars on my route was on time.

    Stay warm, stay safe, stay hearty.
    peace.

  21. It has been awhile Beth. Just passing through and delighted to see the Spring countdown is on. :)
    It is nasty weather here also. We had an ice storm just before Christmas and everywhere here is ice. It is bitter cold with the windchill is seems like -30 celscious . Not sure what that is in F but I know it is darn cold.
    Stay warm, and enjoy a good book, or whatever you please.
    Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year Beth.
    Take care. xx's Dianne:)
