It was 7 here today. The windchill was -10...but I guess I should be glad it wasn't actually -10? This place would be so much easier to tolerate if it weren't so ing windy all the ing time! I mean, I can deal with brushing snow off my car, but not when it just blows back at me and gets in my coat.

I was walking into work the other day...thinking there really isn't anything worse than.....snow blowing down the back of my coat...(and yes I KNOW there are worse things...my fil was just diagnosed with 3 types of cancers today...)but at the moment, that was what I was thinking...and then..some snow blew in my ear....BLEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

And Mason...good thing you are WAY far away, otherwise I'd throw one of these snow balls atcha!!!

Oh, and my furnace is quite nearly close to dying!!! ug...I hope it can hang on until Sat when the guy can come....I think I need adult beverages right about now.

I know! I had the windows open all day and I got pretty chilly around dinner time, so I had to shut them. It was like 65 degrees in here! Brrr! (Usually I have total snow envy, but not lately!)

Hey Mason, where in FL are you? I'm in north east FL, near Jacksonville. The weatherman said there's a very, very, very, very small chance we might see flakes in the morning. Woot!

Ok all you snowbunnies, don't hate on use Floridians. We do melt in the summer here, and our summer is 9 months long.

It snows sideways here a lot because of the wind. Snow in the ear is common. I need to make myself better hats.

We're expecting a big wind storm tomorrow. 60-70 mph winds with snow and rain.

Might skip school if that happens

we had major snow and wind on tuesday here. shoveling became useless.
we'd spend about 2 hours clearing the driveway and our ridiculously long side walk (we have a corner house). our corner is also a bus stop so we try to keep it clean and accessible for the kids.
and then 2 hours later we'd look outside.. and even though the snow was coming down quite slowly.. all our shoveling was filled in with the drifting wind-blown snow.
so, we shoveled again. and then again on wednesday.

on the plus side though, it was like.. 18 degrees on wednesday and i was ready to drive around with my windows down. i was getting so warm in the car. 8)

You Floridians! You would freeze solid here and we'd have to wait until spring to thaw you. heck, at 65 degrees I hardly even bother to put on long pants and a sweatshirt. However, it has been down to single digits and negative windchills the past couple of weeks, and my nose gets cold on the way across campus to class.

65 is sweater weather?! I go riding in 30 degrees in a sweatshirt, long underwear, and jeans and sweat. Of course, when I get off the horse, it's a different matter, but...I think I'm getting tougher where cold is concerned!
