During the deep freeze days of January we don't usually have cloudy days (unless it is snowing). When the temps get below zero we usually have the intense blue skies and bright sun...which makes you *think* you want to go outside and play.
But when check the temperature and my son reminds me (loudly) that exposed skin can freeze in only TEN MINUTES when the windchills are 40 below (or FIFTEEN MINUTES when the windchills are 20 below, or, or, etc.) and so we stay inside our warm home, do fun projects and crafts, read in the bright sunshine, and enjoy the day.
Today we have to venture out to visit a farm (for a pickup) on a very snowy rural road. But then we'll hurry back home to be safe and warm inside as we get our coldest night of the year so far (very cold!). Its all good though - we have lots of fun and interesting things to do!
