    Almost everyone in my town stays home today! Yes, it's freezing cold! :eek: We have to start up the car 3 times a day (at least) to make sure it would work the day after. :(

    I really sympathize with those who have such severe weather to contend with ... nothing like that where we live - it snows and then it melts and streets are clear. Anyway, brrrrrrrrrr!!

    Looool!

    Well, seeing the pictures here, Wilders looks just like home. :D Winter would be much nicer it the temperature wouldn't go under minus 10.
    We turn on the heater in the house but it's very uncomfortable to sleep when the heater is turned high. So, I bought an electric blanket ;) and it's much better .The heater in the house can remain at 72 F and the electrical blanket keeps the bed (and me!) warm.

    Hey Peaches, I can recognize my mitten in the picture, lol!

    And bigc, thanks for the spring picture! :)

    Well, you are lucky not to have to fight with the cold everyday and do 3 hours of shovelling snow each week! :)

    Don't have to live in the north to have some bad weather. I woke this morning in the middle of an ice storm. Total accumulation expected to be 1 inch of solid ice with snow comming tomorrow.
    I live in SW Missouri.
    Don't expect the power to last much longer, so things might get dicey. :mad:
    Can't take any pictures as the wife took the camera when she left.
    Sigh!

    Yes, I have a cat. I named it Nah. :) (No, it's not the one in the picture though) I also had hamsters in the past, hamsters are very fun too, a German sheppard, a li'l beagle and a raccoon. Why a raccoon? There was a bush behind my house where he used to visit me everyday. He kept visiting me until he was too old to come.I love animals, they are good company and can be real friends.

    Wow! Thanks Peaches for the nice animation! :)

    I'm sure all cat lovers would appreciate it:
    Sumire, Snapdragin and Beetlejuice. ;)

    CU!

    ?? Here we are all the way up to -15 (C), the sun's out occasionally, and we're under merely a winter-storm watch, not a real warning -- I thought here in southern Ont. that meant this was spring. :D

    Oh MIke, you have to live in British Columbia to be above the minus level. Sun is shining here, the wild ducks have been fed, and I expect next month the crocus flowers will bloom. Ontario/Quebec? brrrrr!! [shiver].

    -30 wind chills are hard on car batteries too. :doubt:

    I'm very eager for the arrival of Spring! ;)
