Bitter Cold

The current temperature reading is...

*drumroll please*

-17 degrees.

The weather forecast says it really feels like -30 degrees.

So, you could say it's a bit cold here.
{Yes Chris, this is your chance to again be thankful about not living in Iowa ;) Maybe you miss the snow a bit, but at least you don't have to experience this cold, right?!?}

Our Durango is definitely feeling this cold weather.
It needed this...

Yup, it was completely dead and unwilling to start.
And, so was our Jeep.
{Good thing school was canceled today, because my car pooling service would have left a few preschoolers stranded.}
We consider ourselves to have two very reliable vehicles, so Jason was shocked that neither of them would start this morning.
It doesn't help matters any that we have yet to build our garage, so our vehicles were sitting out in the elements all night.
I guess vehicles like to be out in the cold about as much as people do.
Anyway, I think that's our cue to stay inside today.

I just ran to get the mail and froze my ears off.. I'd say it's a bit chilly around here :)

O.k. so now I'll leave the annoying comment that everyone in the cold will hate. In CO it is supposed to get up to 50 degrees tomorrow. Sorry, had to say it :-)

Yup, you're right Julie. That is a really annoying comment, lol. J/K. Glad you're going to be able to keep warm, even though we're not ;)
