From ZERO to 40 in four days


While my car SEEMED to be as cold as this photo depicts this morning, there was no evidence of freezer burn on the dashboard.  It was -8 degrees on my way to work, and right now we are at the "high" for the day which is ZERO degrees.  But we should be able to break out the shorts and suntan lotion by the weekend, when the highs will be in the mid 40's.  Though as cold as it has been, it has still been a milder winter compared to last year when we had the same 3+ feet of snow on the ground from mid December until mid APRIL.  So I'll add an extra scarf and mittens and smile in the face of frigidity (is that even a word?).
