    Uff Da! Sounds like the weather I experienced in Minnesota. Love that nice "crisp and crunchy" sound while walking on the snow. Really something everyone should experience!

    Perhaps it's time to consider a move to Vancouver? Atlanta is not to shabby today -- a relative balmy 32 degrees.

    That wasn't snow crunching, it was body parts freezing

    WW your used to the cold weather. Someone in Canada check on poor Gordo as he's a import from England. Lucky it didn't get to -60 degrees as then your farts freeze solid causing your pants to balloon out exposing your ankles to frost bite.

    Sure was a poor timing for Al Gore to be giving a liberal democrat political speach on lack of GWB's support for the Global Warming Treaty.

    parentsworld ,

    Hummmm I think its time to get some better door insulation going on in your home.. A storm door could help!

    DANG I am still shocked looking at your door. Would hate to see your heating bill. I am complaining about paying $500 a month, could not and would not want to pay your heat bill.

    Oddly enough we do have both a storm door AND weather stripping - it's just the cold coming in the metal.

    I live in a 2200 sq ft house and rarely pay more than $195 for heating. This cold is a fluke - sure, it gets cold here normally, but not in the -50's like now.

    Good thing about the ice and frost? It seals up anything that might possibly leak cold LOL If you look carefully, you can even see the ice building on the walls.

    Happens every few years or so

    You'd best rig up a porta-potty for your pet Moose, as letting him out is not a smart option.

    My poor Greyhounds. they've got no body fat to begin with. I put them in their coats and hats (kid you not) and let them out - or TRY to. They have no clue what to do. They know they need to go out, but when the air hits them they run back inside.

    I get the joy of hauling them outside, standing with them and talking calmly to them while they cry while they pee. Aaaah...the life of a dog owner.

    Sounds like my dog
    Mixed but has some of the greyhound family in her
    Never seen her do her business so quick as past couple days
    Even worse tomorrow, now they have cancelled the school bus for the kids. We live in the city and cancelling bus is almost unheard of unless you live out of town

    In no time it will be spring and summer that is sooooo nice it makes this bearable

    ROFL - good point. Actually, I haven't ventured out much in the past days. The poor kids are still walking to school, but they're not complaining. Kids are tough.

    One of mine came from an Arizona track. I'm sure he's hating me right about now.

    BRRRRRRR!

    I can't imagine temperatures that cold! I hate it when we get in the teens and 20's here, which is rare thankfully.

    I can't imagine having to endure the temps some of you live with on a regular basis.

    Stay warm!

    I was up in Montreal a few weeks ago, where the actual temp was at -16 C, I have no idea what the wind chill was. It was really, really, really x 10 cold. So when I got back to Philly, where it was 23F and wind chills "in the teens", I was like, CRYBABIES!!

    But after being back for a while now and my mind blissfully forgetting how cold I was in Montreal, I can say now that it is really, really, really x 10 cold here, too.

    And my poor corgi, who is so low to the ground, hates the snow and the cold...we have to carry her out to a portion of the yard we shovelled, let her go, and carry her back in, then warm up her paws.

    No wonder it's so cold here in Pennsylvania, Parentsworld. You left your door open!

    It's a balmy -24 today with a windchill of -40. Honestly, my brain actually thinks that's warmer.

    You provide me with constant motivation to keep typing!

    Hot chocolate and nonfrozen plants, now that's more like it!
