It's so cold, that even though you know it makes for poor blogging, you MUST comment on it. There is NOTHING fun about this kind of cold. It's run from the house to the car cold. It's warm up your truck 20 minutes before you intend to leave cold. It's "No, you can't play outside cold." It's "there's a two-hour delay for school" cold. It's "I AM wearing layers!" cold. It's "at this rate we'll run out of wood pellets before the end of the month!" cold.
It's cold people. And it's so totally going to waste. If we had a proper burst of moisture from the East, we could have a whopper of a blizzard! I only remember being in two blizzards. One was in Washington DC (78? 79?) and the other in Boston. I remember thinking they were really cool!!! Since I don't have to drive to work (and assuming we could somehow keep the electricity on here) I think I would STILL find a good blizzard cool. Just, oh, 20 to 24 inches overnight. That would be enough to make things nice and quiet for a few days.
But nothing remotely like that is in the forecast. It's just cold. cold cold cold.
