as the winter winds blow...

Sitting at my computer, I can feel a draft from:
- the bottom of the wall, where there is no baseboard trim
- the window, also without trim
- the wall itself, with inadequate insulation
- my brain, forgetting that God is always good, all the time.

So I grab a blanket, and check Google weather before settling down to business

Chance of Snow Showers Today 10° | -2° Mostly Sunny Wed 14° | 4° Mostly Sunny Thu 20° | 2°

and I am so happy to see that the temps will rise again!!

next time you feel cold, google the weather up here. -40 (w/ the wind and all) the other day! Oh yes! Very very cold!

I have been cracking up b/c here in VA the headlines for the last three days have been "Winter blast" on the news and big drama about the cold. It's only gotten down to the 20's (maybe) but has still gotten up to 32. I guess they're just not used to cold here. Then I talk to Trisha and she said it was -10 one night - now that's a winter blast!

I'm thankful for my years of Northland because they conditioned me to believe that I've never really experienced cold weather again since I graduated. What a blessing!

Have you had lots of snow dumpage in your part of MI? My sis-in-law told me they got 15 inches of white stuff this weekend. I'm thankful for a working furnace and a cuppa hot tea. Ahhhhhhhhhhh . . . .

Jenny-- I have to agree with Natalie, next time you google weather there--check it out in MN. we have had -0 temps for days now, and wind chills of -30 - -40! Ouch, that is cold. worst part of it, the wind.. enjoy the weather and keep warm!

I know, I know! I've definitely become a wimp since I moved back to the "deep south" of MI! LOL. You guys all win the prize for perseverance!!!
