Cold Magic

 
The weekend was amazing. I'm home safe and sound with a little sore throat and more tired than seems reasonable. I'm going to get lots of sleep tonight and hopefully hold off whatever that might be all about.

The snow stayed on the trees both days, and although the weather stayed cold, we took many outdoor excursions. I skied, snowshoed, and walked, played games, sang songs and ate way too much!

While looking at the thermometer, keep in mind that this is Fahrenheit.

Here, the weather warmed to almost 40 again today, but we are supposed to get snow tonight, so we may get to keep winter. Just south of us, they are saying rain, however. Great weekend, but now I have tons of work to do.

I don't think I like it out there when it's so cold. I can usually take the cold pretty good, but on the coldest days I go out just long enough to feed the wood stove right now.

No snow here last night. It was all rain.

We finally have snow in my neck of the woods, and some pretty darn "good" cold! I've arrived at a place in life where ~ more often than not ~ I prefer admiring the winter from the cozy confines of my little hut :)

Enjoy the season, take care of yourself and feel better soon!

Wherever you are XC-skiing looks a winter wonderland, very much unlike what I am experiencing down here.

well look how pretty the snow looks there. much nicer than it does here :)Sure hope you are feeling better tomorrow.
We had 1 degree the other day and 54 today. Right now it's raining and the wind is howling. I hear snow is expected tonight. Could make the morning drive tricky

rainfield- that's the way it works, usually!

Lin- I just feel that not really good not really sick enough to be sick

betchai- I love the woods when they look like that

Ratty- we bundled up and it was fine

Chuck- yuck... rain is icky in Jan

Rose- I still like going out, but not so much when the snow is horizontal, like today

John- it was up on Burt Lake, almost to the Bridge

Ann- that's an amazing temp range... hard for the body to deal with
