No, not another snow day, this time it's time off for cold weather. Seriously. I'm sure some of you southern people can't believe it, but our wind chills today are ranging from -35 in the east part of the state, to -47 near the Minnesota border. So, by school policy -- school is closed!
unfortunately most businesses are not. oh well, another pay day right? It's hard to get a picture to demonstrate cold, I typed in cold temps online and a thermometer picture of -3 showed up. Hah! That's just chilly in our neck of the woods! I couldn't find one that read -15 so I pulled these wussy pictures just so you would have something to look at. I suppose I could have taken a picture of myself in my long johns, pants, shirt, sweater, 2 pair of socks, boots, parka, scarf, cap, gloves............. but I figured I wouldn't fit in the frame with all I'm wearing. You'll just have to imagine what a lovely fashion show it is! Lest you think I'm overreacting, I grew up with this in northern Wisconsin, and bare skin can frost bite in less than 10 minutes with this windchill.
So, who wants to come visit me??? I'll make coffee and hot chocolate and we can sew indoors where it's MUCH nicer!!1
