My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Chilly Willy

The mythical cartoon penguin would probably even be chilly outside in Grand Forks, North Dakota tonight.  The vaunted local weather folks have predicted a low this evening/tomorrow morning of -26.  Sorry my Canadian friends I don't know what that translates into in terms of degrees Celsius, but it's probably like -144 Celsius.  Luckily there is no wind, which is nice because any breeze would make it feel even colder, which would be whack. 

If I can get my fingers thawed out tomorrow, I'll take the camera outside and get some artistic shots of the large icicles hanging from the Grandma-mobile.  Or Alycia and I will go to Arby's.  We'll see which one happens.

Or if you're cold enough, you could find a furry companion to snuggle up with.

I cannot even begin to imagine the kind of weather you deal with in the winter. I have never in my entire life been in weather below O. And that is why I can't whine that it is icy today.

Being a native Southern Californian, I can remember freaking out if it got below 40 degrees. You get used to the cold though, and when it gets really cold, you just don't go out, at all. The extreme cold is still somewhat of a novelty too, when it's -30 with wind chills of -50, you step outside and it just takes your breath away, kind of cool....
