I thought some of you in warmer climates might wonder what happens when it is 40 degrees below zero (with windchills) for a couple of days...
* A less than an hour commute turns into 3 hours - each way!
*The heat in your van goes out when you drive your oldest son back to college. An hour spent in an unheated car at extreme temperatures is painful.
*Your windows freeze up on the inside.
*Interior door thresholds frost up along with door knobs and locks.
*You dress your dog in a handsome new blue sweater (Orion's Christmas gift compliments of my sister!)
*Then you bundle him up in a winter coat. Spend 15 minutes wrestling him into boots only to have him shake them off in 15 seconds before going out the door.
And after all that, what is the best way to warm up?
Spend your evening sewing up a few snowmen, of course :)
We hit the positive digits in temperature today during the day, but it is still dipping below zero at night.
Winter in Chicago (lately nicknamed Chiberia). I think it just shows what a strong people we are and up to the challenge :)
"Seek good, not evil, that you may live.
Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.
Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts.
Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy..."
