Here Comes the Freeze!

We have skated through November and December with pretty decent weather here in the Midwest. Granted, there have been some crazy up and down temperatures, but considering what Illinois winters used to be like (snow, snow and more snow) it hasn’t been half bad.

This week, however, is bringing us some very cold weather. AccuWeather is predicting single digits for Tuesday night and Wednesday during the day. Brrr! Out here in the country we are usually a few degrees colder than they predict, so yep, it’s going to be mighty cold for a few days.

Luckily, my dryer vents indoors so I will plan my laundry for those really cold days and probably even do some baking to help keep the house cozy warm. I sure don’t plan on going outside much!

If you are in an area about to experience a really cold snap, I hope you can keep safe and warm. Surely spring will be here soon, we just have another couple of months to go. (Groan) What do you do to while away the cold winter months?

It's been pretty cold here, but it seems like whenever we have cold we don't have precipitation, and whenever we have precipitation we don't have the cold. No snow for us so far!

I used to live in Illinois and still miss its winters, but then that might just be nostalgia talking. Hope you stay safe/warm in the upcoming days!

Stay warm and safe up there. I wonder if we'll get any snow here this year.

It's terribly cold here again, too. I'm sitting here in the house with my coat on and still cold and its supposed to get down in the single digits tonight so it will be terrible by morning. I'm dreading the electric bill next month!
