When we visit our daughter , who lives down south, some of the locals will sometimes remark that it's usually not so chilly (this usually means it's in the 50's). We in turn respond with "We're from WNY, we're used to alot colder than this!" This winter has made that statement more appropriate that ever before. I will admit, it's pretty 'out there', as long as I can stay 'in here'. The snow sparkles and shines and the wind has blown little snow drifts across the yard. When I actually venture out, it is sooooo cold that the snow crunches.
I'm really ready for this cold snap to be done! We're supposed to have a warm-up this weekend (30's), but only for a day or two, then we're back to the deep freeze. Now, I know, there are many places in the world that are as cold or colder, but I don't live there. I live here. I'm done with this cold. I'm done with frozen pipes. I'm done with watching Netflix, snuggled under two blankets. Well, maybe I'm not done with that, that's kind of nice. I know this isn't going to last forever and eventually, spring will come. It really will!
Here are some pics I snapped last weekend and this morning.
This is what our themometer showed for our front porch this morning
