    Cold here to. Almost all Sunday church services were cancelled in western n.y.
    Today is another cold & windy day. Good excuse to sit and sew all day.

    it is 14 degrees here in central Missouri. with wind chill it says like1 degree. typical weather for February here. We have between 3-4 inches of snow already and it is still falling. Our 5 month old pup is fascinated by the snow and it is fun watching his fascination with it. Husband and I are both retired so we enjoy not having to be out in it but enjoy watching the birds at the feeders and our lab.sz. puppy out in it .Take care and stay warm,jan

    Mid-south is 28 degrees with ice pellets and slick icy roads. Most of the snow stayed north in the boot hills of MO and into Ky and Ind. However, us mid southerners normally don't get a lot of winter precipitation, but do get the cold temps at times. It will be cold all week here in the Mid south. I even see some chicken owners put sweaters on their backyard chickens. lol I thought they were kidding but I actually seen a few pics of knitted and crocheted chicken sweaters. I dont plan on going out at all today with roads being so slick. Coming from wisc., we know how to drive in such conditions but its the homeys here that don't and those are the ones who one needs to watch out for. So today, Ill throw a few logs on the fire and work on tying a quilt and if I really get bored, I can always crochet some chicken sweaters. lol

    Think we are blessed to just have the cold. Right now my house is 57 as the furnace will not kick on. Have two Labs in the house and they look kinda chilly. Furnace will not get attention until after 1pm.

    It is about 6 degrees here in southern WV and we are expecting about 10-14+ inches of snow but I am not complaining because that is nothing compared to Boston. Prayers for them

    In Jan '98 we had snow supposedly turning to rain. My husband was working at the fire department that evening and said that was the most rain he ever shoveled (we actually received about 30 inches of snow).

    Too cold for me here in TN. DH is making noises about doing the "snow bird" thing after this winter--if we get through this one without freezing our hinies off. I have been cold (here in the house) since last week--long sleeves and undershirts in the house, no less. My feet feel permanently frozen.....but thankful I don't live in Boston. Prayers for those folks getting though it.
    Make every day count for something!

So far this winter we've had maybe 10 inches altogether-including last nights 2 inches. And this will be the last of it. I no longer suffer cabin fever.

    I just finished crocheting my DH some slippers. He's a happy camper with warm feet. I used 3 strands of yarn and size N hook. Quick and easy pattern. Made some ham and bean soup in a crock pot last nite for dinner tonite and had also some warm crockpot oatmeal ready this morning. The rest of the day is for me and my quilts. I also hung a smaller quilt over a window on the northwest side of the house as it felt cold there. Made a big difference. Hope ya'll can stay warm these frigid days.

    Oh my, it's cold here in MA, but I remember the many -15 to -25 days when I was growing up in SD. I do not miss those days at all, but I miss my family members who are still there. It's a good day to stay in and quilt; especially here with all the snow we have had recently. I want spring.

    Now you know why I moved away from Michigan. Too cold for too long. It gets cold here in north central Texas but the winter is usually over in March. Tonight we have a bad cold front moving in and my flowers had started to bud out. No flowering shrub again this year.

    Yep really cold here. 71 degrees today with lots of sunshine. Sorry ladies/gents about your weather. I grew up in the cold and don't think I would survive now. It will be getting colder here and rainy tomorrow but it will only last a day or two. Keep safe and warm.

    2 days ago we woke to -47 Celsius & it's been like that for a few days now. We also have about 5 feet of snow in our yard & we're running out of room for it. We won't see spring for at least 6 weeks or more !!! Good thing I have my quilting to keep me sane !!! Lol.
    I live in Northern Ontario, Canada which is not for the feint of heart. We are a hearty bunch here.

    It just warmed up to zero degrees. It was -9 when we woke up. At least the wind isn't blowing today, so far anyway.
