How many of you are in this "deep freeze"?  It has been a looong time since Ma Nature has dumped this much snow and bitter cold in my part of the US of A!  Sure am hoping it will soon  warm up enuf to begin to melt this stuff.  But that is not scheduled to happen any time soon.   It is -5ºF here this morning (wind chill index is -23ºF!).  Fortunately the snow plows have my area cleared fairly well, and should I need to get out n' about I could.  Think I'll just stay inside where it is warm though!

Please check in and let us know how you are doing.

And if you are where it is warm....plez brag about it so we can vicariously absorb some of your warmth!!!

You know we have Directv and we lost the Weather Channel........while I don't think it is the end of the world I happen to like the new one we have called Weather Nation......watching that I have seen storm after storm come toward us and veer off north of us into the east. We have had some cold temps but the other day it got to 60 here. We are having another almost winter day today with a dusting of snow and highs today are supposed to be in the 20s............but I can tell you that is a lot better than below 0 and 70" of snow......

As a matter of fact there are some days that Del had gotten out his fishing pole to get them ready just in case it gets to 65......lol

Anyway.....have we missed the fancy WC here? Not at all the new one has been good for us.....lol

And really I am sorry about all your cold and snow this year...We have been there and done that many times......

Stay warm.....

LOL   Yeh, it got up to just above 40 one day this week.  I think we may have had our summer!!!!    Of course the next day we had thurnder snow. That turned out to be a combination of thunder and lightning along with snow, sleet, rain and heavy winds.  Good ol' Ma Nature is throwing lots of tantrums this year!

Hey Nightangel, I haven't "seen you around" in a while.  :P  I qualify for this board starting next week, so i am posting "early."  :)  It's FREEZING here, but I am taking a trip to Miami next week so I can warm up.  I snowblowed about four inches last night...that may be the 10th time I have had to shovel and snowblow this season.  Here is to indoor heating!  Yay!

Hey, ladybug, you are having a tropical heat wave!  LOL  Our temps are supposed to reach the upper 30's this weekend.  I may run around outside without a coat.   Or, maybe not!!!!!

I was telling some other friends yesterday that this past summer my DS installed an LED light at the bottom of my flag pole to keep my flag lit 24/7 for me.  That bulb and the light sensor attached to it are mounted about 20" above the ground. It has been covered by about 4" of snow. LED bulbs create very little heat, thus the snow that was over it was not melting. The light created under the snow by the bulb was being reflected back to the sensor so brightly that it thought it was day and the sensor would tell the bulb to shut off. Then within about 50 seconds the sensor (then in total darkness) would tell the bulb to turn back on. So that poor bulb has been turning on and off in this "on for 1.5 minutes - off for 50 seconds" pattern all night long!! The poor thing was terribly confused! I could not get to it to remove the snow cover! Finally yesterday the snow settled from its own weight (or blew away by the winds) and the sensor and bulb are about 2" above the snow now and functioning as they are supposed to.  But it sure was funny to watch each night as it came on and went off all night long!!

Hope you are not dealing with any frozen pipes or other nasty things related to this cold.

It finally got above 0 today. It is 16 and everyone is talking about how much it has "warmed" up. What an absolutely amazing situation when 20 feels like spring!
