Bracing For The Arctic Blast

 The Old Farmer's Almanac sure didn't see this one coming.

 Last night it was in the low 30's and the wind howled and the snow blew.

 We only got an inch or so but we had ice first which glued the snow to everything it touched.

 The temps are in the 20's right now but will plummet all day until we hit -5 tonight. The wind chill is predicted to be -30.

 The high tomorrow is supposed to be a balmy 0.

 I am sure schools will be canceled. I live on top of a mountain and the only way out of here is driving down steep, winding, narrow streets so I think I will stay put for a couple of days. I never mind driving in the snow but steep streets lined with parked cars and ice is never a good mix.

 This weather does not deter Teddy though. 

 When she hears me calling her for din din, she flies down the stairs.

 She moved so fast she was a blur.

 She decided it was perfect picnic weather.

 A bit of snow in one's meal adds just the right touch.

She actually acts energized in this weather.  Has the cold arrived in your neck of the woods yet?
