I haven't been out of my PJ's since Monday afternoon. We got a dusting of snow but the temps are sub zero. Lil NF didn't have school yesterday or today. He asked if he could go play outside, and I told him he needed to throw the trash first. It took him maybe a minute to throw the trash, and when he came back he said, "Never mind! Let's watch Dr. Who instead." It is -6 degrees out.

So, I am on my couch in fresh PJ's, eating left over pho, about to put on the Dr.

That sounds like heaven to me NF! Too cold for even the younguns to go out so they're forced to
stay indoors and watch a movie with mama, eating leftovers in our PJ's. Sheer delight, I loved
spending time with my little boys this way.....when they had no choice but to be with me! laugh.gif

I haven't left the apartment since Monday either. It's so cold and slightly snowy here as well. Been watching SVU, Johnny Test, and V.

I am totally enjoying it! Mr. NF was home yesterday, so we all got to hang out. I especially loved going into Lil NF's room at 5 am to wake him up to tell him he didn't have school, and to sleep as late as he wanted. He spent the day on the couch with us, wearing his Superman snuggie and watching movies with us.

One of my cousins is a social worker in the Burque. She went to work in sweats and a scarf. Then they closed! Apparently Vegas has a bunch of snow.

School & work shut down due to the snow storm last night. They expected around a foot, but I think we got more like 8". I feel for you with the sub 0 temps. We shoveled for a few hours and I never got cold.

Here's what our landscape looks like. The last photo is one that Paw took from his truck today.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

Maw, we have almost no snow. I'm pretty sure what we have is really just frost. I can't wait for the end of winter! Lil NF is trying to convice me to take him to Wal-Mart for some Pokemon cards. I told him we would go if he starts my car, scrapes my windows, and lets the car warm up.

No snow here (obviously), but it is ferociously windy & cold in the 50s. Down here, that is cold.

After about another foot of snow yesterday and today, we have 30'' or more the ground here and the snow in my front yard is about 4-6 feet deep thanks to the snowblower. I love the snow, but this is getting ridiculous.

Being snowed in is one thing....being afraid to go out in the cold is a whole nother kettle of frozen fish. Layer up the clothes and go for it!

MY BAD for posting weather stuff on a weather forum. It appears that the great mmi16 has a case of the Mondays.

The temp before wind chills here was -15 for a while. Factor in the wind, and it was going below -50. That isn't bundling up weather. Also, I didn't see where harum said that she was afraid to go out in the cold.
