I checked the weather this evening to see if there might be any school delays or cancellations tomorrow morning (so I can be prepared to sleep in if seminary is canceled) and this is what I found:

***COLDEST WEATHER IN YEARS EXPECTED THIS WEEK***



Nice, huh? It's going to be -13 on Thursday- and that doesn't include the wind chill! And if I am reading correctly, it also appears that the high on Friday is -1 !?!?!? starting tomorrow night our county is on a wind chill advisory. Winds may get up to 40 mph. I can only imagine what it will feel like. I even checked Buffalo's weather for the week- and they've got nothing on us. Their low isn't even below zero.

I do love the cold- but when it gets this bitter cold it makes going outside a chore (especially with Z). I can't figure out how we survived the cold Russian winters being outside everyday!

Holy cow!! I am DYING! I just got our December Questar bill of $160.00 and am cussing up a storm. I CAN'T even imagine. That is SO cold! I hope you're stocked on food. How do people even make it into work? They would be frozen solid before they could make it. Good luck!

That even makes me feel cold and I am sat here in a summer thunder storm in shorts and t-shirt

michell- thank heavens our gas bill (heat and hot water) is included in our rent! we don't have to worry about our heat bill at all!!! it makes it much easier to sleep at night- both because it's nice and toasty AND I don't stress about how much it's costing to be warm and toasty.

We totally feel your pain!! I think we have the weather now that you guys are getting this weekend. This morning when I got up and checked the weather it was 21 below zero and felt like 35 below. Sorry we are sending it your way, but I will be glad when we hit the teens this weekend! :) Good luck staying warm! I can't imagine how you did it in Russia either! WOW! By the way - Zeb is adorable!

It just better be better weather February 3-8 or we may have to postpone your due date.

And did I ever tell you about walking four miles uphill both ways to and from school in the snow in Idaho?

Love ya
