This morning it is a minus 18 degrees below zero. 50 degrees below freezing. It is early January, which means we still have a lot of winter left. That brings me to the question I often ask myself this time of year when we used to live here. Why??????
Believe it or not, but it has already been colder than that. I'm talking 20 to 30 below. Then if you factor in the wind chills, we are talking about 40 to 50 below. At these temperatures, exposed skin will freeze in a matter of minutes. We have already gotten more snow than we did last year. The snow piles around the house are many and quite large. Why?????
You may be asking yourselves this. "Do they live in the Arctic?" "Do they not know that there are warmer places?" "Have they forgotten how to drive?" "Have thier brains frozen over?" "Why?"
In 2014, 6 years pre-covid, we sold everything and hit the open road to find warmer winters. It was nice. We always went home for Christmas to spend time with family though. In 2019 we did not go home for the holidays and it was tough on us. Rather it was very tough on Lisa. The reason being is that we have 2 grandkids now.
