Baby, it's cold outside!

This was my car thermometer this morning as I left for work. Yes, that's minus 14 degrees.In the wind. With this huge "in-case-I-get-stuck-on-the-side-of-the-road" coat that makes me feel like a Sumo wrestler.

That stiff-looking figure to the right of the 14 could be have been me. Frozen solid.

This same coat forced me to go from a compact car many years ago to an SUV (I couldn't fit in that Tercel with that coat)!

And the same coat, yes, that on a whirlwind trip to Tar-jay this evening, caught the end of a DVD display stand and dumped every single DVD to the floor. Santa Clause, I & II, Clark Griswold, Buddy the Elf, Ralphie...all fell victim to the coat.

And by the time I got back to my car, I was sweating like crazy. But by then it was 5 degrees above zero. Almost 20 degrees warmer than when I had started my morning at 0500.

Tea tonight: Chinese flower

I'll pray for you while I'm on the beach sunning myself.

Saw your comment on Stacy Small's Facebook page...it was *only* minus 9 here in Harlan, IA (kitty-corner across the state from you) yesterday morning. Of course, we're a little bit further south than you!

I am cold just reading that (although the image of the tumbling DVDs is warming me with laughter a little :)
