Extra Brrrrrrrr

I left the milk in the porch. Normally, not a problem since it's like an extended refrigerator out there. This time? Froze solid. Oh, the joys of a mid-western winter.

Recently I read a thread on Powerswitch (a peak oil site for mostly UK dwellers) where they were discussing how cool their homes would get without heat....somehow, none of them mentioned frozen. It's illuminating how different our climates really are with many of them beginning to work outside now and some even seeing the first spring flowers. We, on the other hand, are pleased with a forecast that looks to be mostly above 0 F (-18 C).

Spring is still a fantasy.

We went back to a bit of a cold snap this week but nothing below -5 degrees c thank god...I'm not so much of a cold weather fan and I am hoping every day to see some signs of spring!!
