Cold and more Cold

I awoke this morning to a temperature I haven't seen in a long time. It was a - 21 C (-5.8F) with a wind chill factor of -29 C (-20.2 F). Brr... oh brr... oh damn brr!

The county has issued a frost bite alert. Do you know what that is? It's when the weather temperature is so extremely cold you are at risk of frost bite to your toes, fingers, ears and nose. All those little appendages that stick out in the cold or, areas where you have not dressed yourself well enough to be protected from this deadly cold.

The other thing about the frost bite warning, it asks that you include checking in on the elderly and any live alone seniors in your neck of the woods to make sure they are okay during this cold snap. Now that's not a bad idea. Though there are none of those in my area.

I am going to go and look at my new gardening catalogs. I can't take any more of this cold. I have to look forward to something good don't I? I do to survive this cold!!!!!!

Our poppies are in full bloom as our temps crest 60F day after day. We are finishing the fourth day of a sixteen-day dry, sunny period in the middle of our rainy season. Love the Bay for tempering our weather.

Both of you... cease and desist with that talk of warm weather. I am so jealous!!!!! Right now I would settle for 0 C (32F).

Little old me...
