    Uffda!  Windchill was -27 this morning.  It is finally 'cold' in Minnesota.  You haven't experienced cold until you can take a deep breath and have your nostrils freeze shut.  No, I'm not kidding.

    Woo Hoo, only 4 more months until the sun shines again and the snow starts to melt.  This stuff sucks.

    Kim--

    My mom was from Hibbing...she and Dad would leave Maryland in January and drive up to stay for a few weeks to visit friends and relatives.  I kept telling them I was going to use it as evidence in the commitment hearings, LOL!  She absolutely loved it there in the winter.  (shaking my head sadly.)

    Stay warm!

    Isn't it FUN, Kim?   ::)

    Yesterday it rained in the morning, then the temp dropped so the wet roads iced over and the rain turned to sleet.  I was doing a craft show in Savage and had to drive home in that mess.  Drove slowly and watched the "car ballet" ahead of me as the cars slipped and spun.  I was EXTREMELY glad this morning that my commute is only 2.5 miles.

    I have to admit Northern Minnesota is beautiful.  But we are a bunch of crazy people for living here.

    Most people just focus on the heat of the summer, but in the winter it can get to the 30s-50s, but precipation is rare here, which decreases our chance of snow. We have a lot of days we could have snow, but there isn't enough moisture. Every couple of years there is snow fall, but it doesn't last. 4 of the five years I lived in vegas it has snowed at least once. No one ever mentioned that it gets cold here in vegas to me when we moved from overseas.

    I was in Vegas 2 years ago at Christmas and they had snow one morning. I loved it.

    Don't be surprised if you don't get too much sympathy!   :D

    I didn't expect much, much but it gets hot really fast when you have a lot of  servers around.  To go back to an earlier argument, I'd still rather be hot then cold. ;D

    Good Morning!

    Hope everyone is New England is getting their power back or managing to stay warm. Worry about you folks. Sounds like another weather blast is coming, and I know we have Minnesota members, it sounds like you got quite a dump of snow.

    Today:  have to work on a commission, see the orthopedist and go to knee therapy, so I have to go out in the rain, yuck. (Since I work from home most of the time, not used to having to go out if the weather is bad!) Stepped funny on a curb yesterday, and got a sharp pain in my knee, so I guess it's good I'm seeing the orthopedist.  Hope I don't have to go through this again!

    38 with a high of 40 here in Maryland today. Yuck! Will be heading to school shortly to volunteer, then off to the post office to mail Mike's book to another reviewer, then back home to get to work. Wish my head didn't hurt so badly today. Got a lot of work to get done.

    Betsy, hope that knee feels okay today!

    Good Morning Everyone

    The kid got up late for school, the dog chewed up a Christmas ornament (it was glass, I hope she didn't swallow any), I'm on my way to the dentist go get a crown, since I'll be at the dentist I am missing a meeting at work which I believe was set up to tell me that my project is being cut in size by 75 percent.  It's going to be one of those days.

    Hope everyone else has a great day.

    24 degrees, no snow and the sun is shining in Niagara Falls. I actually have a weekday off for only the second time in months, yahoo! DS in school and DH is running the store today (I own a Subway).

    Have to migrate some more stuff onto my new computer, and do some catching up on the business bookkeeping, so will be on the computer until my carpal tunnel tells me to stop...

    Bosslady, congrats on 50 posts!  You're no longer Dr. Seuss!  Enjoy your day off!

    Kim, hope your day gets better and that the dog is OK.  Good luck with your crown and the project!

    Will post knee status.   ???

    Morning a sunny 73 here in Miami.  The usual work day today, things are starting to wind down for the holidays so it is quiet.  A good thing, nos I can get all the stuff I've been shoving to the back of my desk done before I take off for the holidays.  I found out yesterday my department is being audited for compliance after the new year. Ugh!

    Betsy, hope your knee is okay, continue to keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Everyone enjoy the day and don't get too cold.

    Rainy and 50 here in NW Georgia.  The day got off to a lousy start.  I got caught in massive traffic jam on I-75 due to wrecks, reached for my phone to call in and realized that my phone, wallet, watch and id are all sitting on the shelf at home (got out of the routine before leaving).  I have to work my way over to the right-hand lane and go back to the house and get my "stuff".  It got better because I stayed at the house until the traffic cleared and then had an easy commute to work.

    Morning all,

    43 degrees right now. It is supposed to get colder as the day goes on with snow tomorrow, clearing Thursday, snow on Friday, clearing Saturday, snow on Sunday, clearing Monday and snow next Tuesday! What a weather report.
