My. Word. It's cold!
I have to admit... today, I am so thankful that we are all tucked in at home. My hubby is working from home. My son is off today. School was cancelled for my daughter, and my Tuesday baby-rocking doesn't start until next week!
Our son was having some car issues that have been resolved. On Sunday, he dropped the car off for an appointment on Monday. I took him to work Monday afternoon, and he was able to drive home a good-as-new car on Monday night. [thankful!]
As I write this, it is hovering around -10F with a wind-chill somewhere around -30 -- which is actually a warm-up from the-15 I saw on the thermometer at midnight.. Hard to believe that Sunday evening it was a balmy 36F and raining. The rain melted a lot of the snow, and by Monday morning, there was only a dusting more, so SNOW hasn't really been an issue. They say there will be more blowing than accumulation at this point.
Last night, my daughter came and gave me a hug saying, "everyone will be tucked in together tomorrow." Not literally, of course [although we'll see where those temps go! LOL] --- but she sure does think like her mama!
Oh, and another thing to be thankful for? I live in NE Ohio -- where we like to say this [in one form or another]:
"Don't like the weather? Wait a minute."
Right now? The wind has died, and the sun is shining. Who knows what's coming next. [God does.]
