A Good Old-Fashioned Winter

I feel like I'm living in the pages of a Laura Ingalls Wilder book. I'm huddled at home in front of the crackling fireplace making a corn husk doll while Pa trudges through the hip-deep snow. Okay, I'm not making a doll, but I am sitting in front of the fireplace. And don't feel too bad about Pa . . . he is trudging through hip-deep snow, but safely inside his toasty warm 4-wheel-drive truck.

For those of you who have never seen –9° on a thermometer . . .

Dinner last night: white chili, cornbread

I would have been perfectly fine never seeing -9 again. Oh the flashbacks!

I really enjoy the contrast between your world and mine. I live on the Texas coast. It was 80 today. Cold front tonight will drop the temps into the 50s. Stay warm.

It was 75 here today. My sister lives in Austria and it hasn't snowed all season till today. She swears it is global warming

Oh wow...and I feel bad for complaining about our 50 degree weather. I'm such a wimp...
