Oh geez, Breeze . . . you've reminded me of something I hadn't thought about for years - the vehicles' doors freezing shut! There was one time the only way we were ever gonna get out was the 4WD Jeep pickup, and it was the one vehicle completely glazed over with about 3/8-inch of ice! We could get into the car & it even started, but it couldn't move on all that ice! I finally called in to work & begged off that day . . .

ICE is a bad word. I don't know how you survive living outside in the country. I wouldn't last a week! Mom wanted to go to the store and she couldn't get in the car. So, I got dressed (really slow) and went out and got her into the car.

In view of more precipitation in our forecast tonight/tomorrow, we scooted our old bones into town for supplies just now. And got some good bargains too . . . three packages of cube steaks reduced - they were cheaper per pound than the hamburger, so - sez I - if we get a hankering for a hamburger, we'll have a steak sandwich instead! We came home with a good stock of several meat items, & all for under $2/lb. 'Course we came home $100 poorer too . . . ah well . . . and they were out of a lotta things because everybody's doing the same as we - bracing for the next onslaught.

I am suffering severely. No seriously I am. I don't think it is anything to do with diabetes I think it is due to me losing weight. I am constantly freezing and can never get warm. It has been -14 deg F for the last couple of days here in the morning. Even last summer when it was 75 outside I felt chilled. Now that winter is here I just can't put enough clothes on. Almost make me want to get fat again NO just kidding.

You guys got hammered up there this week . . . we were on the far southern edges of it & we have it bad enough. I've had to have a flannel robe on all the time - two pair wool sox on and still wrap a lap robe around my legs when I'm in my rocking chair in the living room. And we have radiant heat that nearly roasts us, but the wind gets in every little chink when it blows like it has this week . . . so still seems like lots of drafts (there are some serious tradeoffs for living in a 100+ year old house! ).

I bought myself a small room ceramic heater and I keep it on the floor when I am on my computer and it keeps me really warm. I paid $20 for it and it was worth every penny. It is also light weight enough to carry to any room in the house. GET ONE

Would I be wrong if I proposed to Pam just to move to Texas?
