BRR COLD


The cold weather has arrived with strong winds and blowing snow. The ground is white, but not as much as the picture I  took last year. We didn't get much above 20 today, but with the wind chill it was much lower. This evening we are down to 18 and we will have a single digit wind chill.We are still having a few snow flurries.
I know that it makes me want to hibernate to where it is warm. I was thankful that they kept the overhead door down as much as possible today or my office would have been an ice box regardless of where they had the temperature set. 
I can't believe the people and how they drive when we get the snow. It is unreal, because they tail gate. I saw two accidents on my way to work this morning and it was because the were doing that very thing. You couldn't tell with it still being dark exactly what you were driving on. I just know I will be glad when the days get longer so it is lighter when I go. 
I try to keep myself very busy right now so I don't have time to think about what is going on with my other half. We have doctor appointments coming up so we will just have to wait and see what they say now. I kinda think I already know part of the answer. At least the medication is cheaper at the moment because we aren't in the lovely donut hole. 
We finally got all of his cards for this year so if I need the hospital I have the new supplement card in place.
I thought I was going to get blown over last night with the wind so strong. When I stopped at the store, I tried to pick a spot where the wind wouldn't hit so strong. My carryout boy was glad that I did that. They said that it was going to be coming through, but I think that it was faster then they thought. 
My vintage snow people tea towel is coming along nicely. It goes a little quicker because I am not changing colors as much. I have some new ones coming that I haven't seen when I went surging. I try to find something that you can't walk into a store and find. 
Well I better call it a day. Hope you have a safe and warm one.

I don't want any snow here in Texas this year. So far we've been fine. The past couple of years were ridiculous with 1-3 foot of snow. We don't have any equipment for that here. Hopefully we stay snowless!
I hope for the best with your appointment. You must be so stressed and for that I'm very sorry.
Stay warm!

Shirley, I hope everything goes well for you and your husband and you don't have to use any supplemental cards as that will mean he is healthy!
I understand how you feel about cold and snow and dark, but my that tree looks pretty!
A big hug and a belated Happy New Year to you!
