At 7 a.m. it was 15 below zero, and more than a little brisk.
Inside, when I woke up, it was a balmy 60 degrees, and in bare feet, I hurried across the cold kitchen tiles to turn on the gas heater. Rest assured that as I type this, I am wearing socks and warm slippers. 😉
While such extreme cold is unusual nowadays, when I was young it was common to have a stretch of cold weather like this the end of January.
It was also common to have big snowstorms, nor’easters, blow up the coast, and we still have those each winter. This weekend, the weather forecast predicts a nor’easter, and right now we are slated to get between eight to ten inches of snow. The coast might get twenty inches. Good thing we have Snow Joe to help with the clean-up.
I’ll be out with my camera to get pictures of the storm.
