Hunkering down..Big Chill in Texas
brrrr..it's a balmy -1C (-5 with the windchill) or 30F (23 with the windchill factor). The kids were very excited to see the itty bit of snow coming down, mixed with freezing rain. Sorry guys, there's no making a snowman out of this! It's kinda nice and cozy though. My husband and I have been playing scrabble for the last two days and today, since schools and work got canceled, we're playing again. When it's cold and gray, it feels like 'Harry Potter' weather to me (translation, daydreams of Hogwarts and wanting to show of my talents of the dark arts come to mind) and perhaps we'll see an HP film later. Right now, daughter dearest is watching Finding Nemo.
I talked with a very old friend (as in, the one I've had the longest) from Canada last night and I related to her how they're using sand to make the roads more driveable.. of course, she, like me, said, they should use salt, sand doesn't help! But anyway, most people are off the roads and like I said, it's kinda cozy inside.
It's been a looong time since I had to bear the frigid weather up in Ottawa, CA and I don't think that after all these years living in the South, that my body could handle the very below freezing temperatures..and the windchills! Brrrrr...
I'm going back to finish lunch and play another game of scrabble.
