It is freaking cold here! It went down into the low teens or below last night. It was all of 20 degrees when I got up around 8 this morning. Cleo usually wants out first thing but when I opened the door she changed her mind.....quickly. So glad I found my LLBean flannel lined jeans so I can bundle up. My heat pump is madly pumping away and I can just picture the meter spinning at great speeds and the electric bill climbing into the stratosphere. I have to go to run errands so it's leg warmers, turtle neck, sweatshirt, flannel shirt, long johns today. It's supposed to get up to a whopping 34 today and down to 18 tonight. I can see ice forming on the pond which, by the way, I will avoid dealing with as long as possible while it's this cold. Perhaps there's a silver lining to it being this cold, though. Fewer people out and about so I might be able to get my errands done quickly.
Y'all stay warm today and remember: cold is a four-letter word. Hmmm, but then again so is warm.
