Good Morning from the very chilly Blue Ridge mountains!
We finally got what everyone else has been experiencing, winds 18-32 mph right now and a wind chill of -1!  :o  Luckily, no precipitation forecasted so we don't have to worry about the snow that some of you are having to deal with.  :(  I hope everyone gets dug out OK.

    Good morning from mostly cloudy central Florida.  Haven't read this thread for a couple of days ... but now I remember why we moved here! We're supposed to get up only to about 60 today. Brrrr!! Think I'll stay indoors!  ;D  :D  ;D

    Baking is done ... gifts are wrapped. We're headed up to near Atlanta to be with my daughter for Christmas. Anyone on these boards live near Woodstock, GA?

    Good Morning my new Dear Friends,

    11 degrees with thick ice on my windshield this a.m.
    Will go out for breakfast once the truck warms up enough to start melting that ice.

    Be well and have a good day all.

    Morning all,

    18 degrees here in Portland, Maine this morning. We got walloped with snow...at least a foot, I'd say. The snow is stopped now but the wind is picking up. Schools are closed. I dragged my 20 yo son out of bed to help his father with the shoveling and just got an earful on what a cruel mother I am. Ah well, c'est la vie.

    A chilly 5 degrees here in SW Indiana.  I am not venturing out today.  It has been so windy but that is supposed to die down today.  No ice on my car windshield as it is 60 in my garage.

    Sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat. It's a balmy 14 degree here in Maryland today. The high is supposed to be in the mid-20s, with wind chills around 2. And unfortunately I have to go out today. We opted not to finish our Christmas shopping on the weekend to avoid the craziness. Now I just have to deal with the crazy weather. Yuck! :(

    It is 3 degrees with -15 wind chill here in southern lower Michigan.  Am curled up with my kitty and coffee but need to move, finish up Christmas shopping, run errands, etc. etc.  Could have done it last night but it was
    -27 wind chill and just couldn't bring myself to do it.....

    My husband and son were pretty efficient with the shoveling. Now Tony is off to work and Lance has gone back to bed! I'll go to work, too, but there is no point in rushing. Portland had a parking ban last night, which means that people who normally park on the street needed to move their cars to designated parking lots. The parking lot at my office is one such designated site. The parking ban cars are supposed to be out of the lot by 8 am and then the plows show up sometime after that to plow the lot properly. So, if I get there much before 10 am, I am liable to get plowed in. Better to stay at home for a few hours and enjoy the morning.

    Good morning!

    Leslie, you're such a mean mom!  Just kidding, sounds like you're building character to me. Glad you  can spend some extra time here on Kindleboards!

     It's bright and cold here this morning in Northern Virginia, we were at 15+ degrees this morning when I got up! Brrrr!

    Unfortunately, I have to go out for knee therapy.  The good news, I was able to go down steps this weekend like a normal person (not that I'll ever be normal, LOL!).  Bad news too much walking doing Christmas shopping, knees a little sore.  Oh, well.

    Stay warm everyone in the cold zones!

    Good Morning!  Got everything wrapped this weekend, I just need to pack and head to Orlando after work tomorrow.  It is 67 here in Miami with a high today in the low 70's.   Now I'm going to shut up before I get in trouble with those of you in the cold north.

    Good Monday morning everyone,
    6 degrees, wind chill -12 and a high of 18.  I also have to go out today.  Job at 1 and then thought I would also finish up my shopping today without all the crowds.  Hope that was a good decision.

    Hi all frozen in Seattle, I got plenty of sleep so I'm not sleepless just frozen  ;D  Got an email from our boss today to stay home. Figured he would still make us drive in but guess all the snow finally made him give in.

    Happy snow day!

    Morning all,

    Frozen is the word....-4 degrees (that's fahrenheit) here in frozen southern Maine. It is pitch black out there so I have no idea what is in store for us in terms of sun or clouds today.

    Good morning from Missouri. 25 degrees right now and we are looking for "more" freezing rain around noon. Goody more ice to go with the ice we still have on the ground. Gotta love winter in Missouri ;)

    Good morning from Alabama, it is 32 this morning. Supposed to warm up with increasing clouds and rain for tomorrow. Time to get ready for work.

    I had Timothy's Columbian Vereda and it was a 3 star.

    Have a good one!
