Don'tcha just love it when....

.... you're having really COLD weather and your friends send you emails that say "I don't mean to rub it in, but..." and then they proceed to rub it in by telling you how warm it is where they are? And then they even send photos of places where they're enjoying all that warmth... like Disneyland, or Arizona? Yep, that's what I've been getting lately. You know who you are! Ha! 

I'm just kidding! I don't feel "rubbed in" at all... I love getting your emails and photos. Keep 'em coming!!

Anyway, how cold has it been here? Yesterday morning it was this cold:

That was when I took the pic around 9:00 a.m. It was -22° when I got up. Not as bad as they'd predicted, though, which was -26°!

Of course all that cold has left us with plenty of frost again. This was on the inside of the window:

There were also some pretty designs in between the panes of glass:

But really... I got enough of frost-photo-taking last winter, so this doesn't really thrill me. In fact, I'd rather not have any frost to take pics of at all!

brrr. I hope you have a cozy place to endure this weather!
Here in Europe it is much too warm for January. We're having more than 10°F right now, the bushes and trees are in flower and the birds are singing. It will probably all freeze to death when the cold comes over.

Ahhh... now we know where "global warming" went! I'd been wondering. ;)

We had sunshine all day yesterday, Bonnie, but it still didn't get above -11. I guess it wasn't CA sunshine. :) It sure did help warm the house, though!
