So, it sounds like the whole country is enjoying the Arctic blast this weekend (hey, we’ve been “enjoying” this since last weekend, so no sympathy from this direction). Our daily highs the past couple days and for the next few days will be single digits BELOW 0 degrees F. And don’t get me started on the lows (-20 degrees F). Then again, we live way farther south than International Falls, so I guess I can’t complain too much, because they are ten to twenty degrees colder than we are.
BTW, that’s not wind chill. The weather wonks are saying -20 to -35 wind chills this weekend. Yep, stayin’ in for sure. Just another day in paradise–if you’re a polar bear. And yes, it’s tradition in MN to complain about the weather …
So, to lighten things up, I collected a few reflections on, you guessed it, cold weather.
On the bright side, we are kitten-sitting this weekend! And Zoey is tolerating the kittens more this time. She’ll even stay in the same room with them now.
Cold outside is just one more excuse to stay in and write.
Stay warm, everyone! Keep writing!
