Polar Vortex

For those of you who haven't experienced a Wisconsin winter, this is one that you aren't going to miss. So far there have been way too many days below zero. Yes I'm using Fahrenheit degrees here. Today's and tomorrows weather will be dropping possibly to 40 degrees below zero with wind chills of 60 below.

This weather is wearing down the moral of many of us hearty northerners. You will still see people ice fishing, bow hunting and of all days the Packers football team will be playing at Lambeau field outdoors today, but most of us will be suffering cabin fever inside
.

To describe it, it's kinda like hell freezing over as Chaseburgmania comments. So what do we do here during the Arctic blast that closes schools and causes so many snow birds (Wisconsinites that travel south for the winter) to take wing.

We make soup while wiping down the frost on the inside of the windows. Mine's an inch thick inside on the skylights.
We catch up on laundry and have to preheat the clothes dryer before adding a load. It vents to the outside.
We plan warm weather and beach vacations on the Internet and dream of better days ahead.
We throw cups of water into the air outside just to watch it freeze in mid air.
We catch up on Dexter, all seasons now available on Netflicks. It's not a warm and fuzzy show but it does take place in Florida.
We watch the Packers football game just to see the crazy fans.

Stay warm my friends, all those in the south send us you warm thoughts, spring fever is going to be epidemic this year.

  1. This sounds like an exceptionally brutal winter this year, I'm so glad I'm outta there and now hauling water to deer any more. I doubt I could manage the run to the hot tub in this weather. Stay warm!
