Holy Moly it's cold!

Last night the wind literally shrieked all night as it blew across the city and over our roof, following several inches of snow from earlier in the evening. We woke up this morning to -6°F with wind chills of -30°F!!!!!! and it did not warm up more than 3 degrees all day. Why is wind noisier the colder it is?

As I drove past the Chicago river it was steaming. Tomorrow we are looking at more of the same and then two more days of snow. It feels like we are living in the Arctic. I guess this is the weather that Chicago is known for. Brrrrrrrrrr...............


  1. Sounds like a good time to stay inside and QUILT!

  2. Time to bring out the fur lined long underwear.

    hi judy, love this photo.

    your description of your weather makes me shiver!!! the coldest winter i ever remember was my first winter in chicago, 1978.

    so staying in to quilt or knit or play with photos definitely seems your best option.

    a very cozy merry christmas to you & your family. and thank you for sharing so much with us this past year.

  4. it is about zero here today in da UP. it snowed for the last two days. victoria (my 7 year old grand daughter who is staying with us for four weeks) is loving the snow. have a very happy christmas!
