It was -20 at 9:00 am, ladies and frozen germs. That's twenty degrees below zero, Fahrenheit. And that's without wind chill, which added (or subtracted) a good ten degrees. It's cold enough that if your car stalls on the highway, you'd better stay in the car and wait for rescue, rather than walking a mile to the nearest farm house, unless you want to end up a corpscicle. It has since warmed up to a relatively tropical -14, but that's still chilly enough hunker down inside with a cup of cocoa and a lap full of wool. Which is what I intend to do.
I hope you're all warm and cozy too.
