The sun is blinding off the snow this morning.
No trip to federal housing.
So cold the senior bus service was cancelled. Right now it is 23 below and the wind chill is 47 below. There are places up here that have almost 60 below wind chill. Public schools, colleges, and many businesses are closed, too. What a cold winter this year!
I left a message on my new worker's answering machine, but I haven't heard back yet. They might not even be at work, either, for all I know. I should probably call back and leave another message on the main switchboard. Don't want to get in trouble with Uncle Sam, you know.
Silly Karma wants to go out.
I told her no.
Cats do not like to be told no.
She's been pouting and complaining by the door.
I tried to get shots of the crystals that are on the screen door from top to bottom...
...but my camera can't catch the true glinting beauty!
My whole porch door sparkles!!
Minnesota schools are closed statewide. North Dakota is probably close to the same, just not officially. There's debate on the weather channel up here as to why they panicked this time. It was 25 below only a few days ago and kids went off to school. They blame it on the media and all the focus on wind chill temps--but it's still only 23 below--LOL!
Anyways, I am home and quite glad to be. ;)
Oh, I measured the little book. It's 5 1/2 by 6 3/4 inches. I have several sets of different chipboard covers that are all that same size to play with and one set that is very tiny.
Karma has given up on the porch. She'd be fine if she went out for a couple minutes (which is all she wants to be out in this cold anyways, goofy girl), but I just really don't want to be opening and shutting the door and chilling the living room. It took long enough to warm it up to 68-70 in here yesterday.
Well, stay safe and comfortable--whether you are dealing with the heat or the cold today. :):)
