Yikes…

It’s been super cold here in the Midwest (high of ten degrees today, low of 12 below last night) but we’re expecting warm ups by this weekend and maybe even 40 degrees one or two days next week!  Hallelujah!   We have some snow, but only three or four inches.  And the sun is shining brightly, hence the really, really cold temps.  When it hits above freezing I may attempt to clear the driveway, but really, if I can drive over the snow, does it matter?

But the East Coast was hit with a “bomb cyclone” recently, with more than a foot of snow in many places and now dropping temps.  Is that even a real term or just something the weather people made up?   (Okay, I looked it up and yes, it’s a real meteorological term so if you want to know what brings the snow and cold, you can look it up online, too, 😉 )  To all my East Coast friends and family, please stay safe and warm!  Hopefully we will get through January and February here in the States and on to better weather…
