BABY IT'S REALLY COLD OUTSIDE

 For us anyway...




Our coldest weather in FOUR years...feels like 9 degrees, yep, that's REALLY cold for us.




We had sleet and snow flurries (very scattered) yesterday and today is clear...and COLD.  This is what they call "pipe busting" weather for our part of the country with temps below freezing for a couple of days. 

Thankfully, the farm house pipes are still drained and the water is shut off.  Several bridges and roads around the area have iced over, so we'll be staying in town today where it's nice and warm...


...and I get to wake up to homemade pancakes covered with butter and still using Jaz's gift of Pennsylvania Maple syrup...

Life is good!

  1. Sounds like it. I've been staying in for two days and am stir crazy. -3 degrees at the farm last night. Misery. I'm at the city house and the lake out back is frozen over. Been feeding the water fowl cracked corn and dog kibble on top of the ice. When we lived in Bellaire, we sometimes didn't even have to turn on the heater, but it once got down to 10 degrees and our pipes froze. Did I say I don't like winter?

    1. LOL! You need to go visit Jaz over at Octoberfarm blog (she's in our sidebar list) she can tell you where to buy! :-)

      Snow, I'd love to see it like that here just once but I hate the thought of having to still go out in it to go to work and the store.

  5. Echoing MaryJo. And I prefer the cold. It is easier to get warm and stay warm than the opposite.

    1. I have always said that too. You can cover up and get warmer but if you're hot and start taking everything off, you can still be nekkid AND hot, LOL!!!!!!!

  7. It is overly chilly here today, but according to the weather people it is supposed to be in the 70's by the end of next week. I am not putting my flip flops away this year.

  9. Hi, here is cold too, just a little colder than in your place :)
    It's about -18 C or -3 F. I had made a cake for orthodox Christmas yesterday. I can't stay at my garden cottage in that weather.

  12. Really pretty pictures of the frosty ice. They just make me appreciate even more being inside where it's warm. I'm so glad that tomorrow it will be near 70!
