    You haven't lived until you are walking the dogs in -40F with a 30 mph wind. Refreshing! The dogs were ok, more fur than a yak. One must dress for the
    weather.

    Best way to dress for that is wearing a Hudson’s Bay blanket in front of the fireplace.

    When Ilived at 9200’ in Colorado, we had two seasons: July, and Winter!

    Cold but dry.

    Out here on the left coast when it gets down below 40 degrees but humid it’s like a micro-wave oven in reverse: the cold bounces off your bones!

    You guys are killing me! Just take a nap in your office, with the door closed and the "in a meeting" sign on the door, like everyone else!

    Dude, we're talking new world of work at my company. Open floor plan. No cubes. No offices. No naps. Which means bodia ain't goin' anywhere near the office!

    My shrubs out front are looking a bit cold, other than that, cleaned the car off this morning, got in, started her up (after a few cautious cranks of the engine) and no anxiety here. Temps are currently 25℉ (in the sunshine) with little to no breeze. Was frankly worried last night that this morning's temps would be too cold for my car's engine to start. Not a problem, actually.

    Was sitting in my room last night playing the video I had chosen, and realized that the thermostat could use a bump upwards. Much better. T'was cold outside, but indoors was manageably warm.

    Times are tough. I didn't think I was that big of a deal, but my 12x12 with locking door and a high back leather chair doesn't sound so bad any more. Now if you'll excuse me, it's lunch and "reflection time."

    So it’s been in the low 40’s the past couple days. 45 for tomorrow. Polar vortex back to global warming. My pup and I have enjoyed some long walks. Of course he feels the need to walk in the sloppiest, muddiest places. It’s been a nice break. We’ll dip back to the 20’s after that. Even the 20’s don’t seem half bad this time of year.

    It hit 61 yesterday, so we had a 90 degree swing in just a couple days from the wind chill factor Wednesday to the temp yesterday. And, it's 60 degrees now.

    I know Alan has been looking forward to this, so it just might be a Speedo day today!

    For all of you that live in cold weather climates during the winter, it looks like the worst is over! In my neck of the woods (Southern Ca.), you had better like rain because that's all it has been doing here since last Thursday (& I am not complaining - we need it)
