A New Year, a change in the weather ~ yikes it’s cold!

Standard

snow

Yeah, Yeah, I know. It’s winter. I live in Idaho. But seriously… this is ridiculous. Let’s see, right now it is… 7 degrees. They are forecasting that the temperature in the morning will be minus 4 or thereabouts. brrrrrrrr!! It used to be this cold, the first time we lived here. It just seems like it hasn’t been like this the last several years. But now? Global warming my eye. 

It’s so cold I couldn’t bear to make the outdoor cat sleep … well, outdoors. He has a bed – well, a blanket in a box in the shed – but it’s so cold! Poor kitty. So I made him a spot out in my dad’s garage, and dad didn’t argue. He says cats are spawn of the devil, but he has a soft spot in his heart for all animals, regardless. 🙂  It’s nearly 60 in the garage, so I think that’s a big step up.

It makes it rather hard to follow through – oh, shoot, to even begin! – that wonderful ‘resolution’ of getting out and walking every day! Yeah, I don’t think so!

Just as I’ve been typing this (altho I admit, I am also watching a movie, so it’s taken longer than you’d think) it has dropped to 5.5 degrees…

Thank the Lord for warm homes, fireplaces, snuggly beds and hot tea.

  1. Brrrr…..our heat went out on one of the coldest days yet here…about 27 or so. Thankfully, our next door neighbor had a couple of space heaters to lend us and we were toasty. Boiler was fixed the next day.

    Stay warm!

    • Oh no! Glad you got it fixed and were able to keep warm in the meantime! We went to see the Christmas lights at the Botanical Gardens tonight… it was about 14 degrees… my bum is still not warmed up, lol!
