It's Cold Out There!

We are experiencing very cold weather! I read a report this morning that this week will be the coldest in 15 years! Single digit temperatures, sleet, ice and some snow are in the forecast for this weekend. I have ordered more wood for the fireplace, planning on stocking up the cupboards tomorrow and dragging out the extra blankets. I also, have to dig out a coat. Our temperatures are usually very mild here and I seldom get to wear my heavy coat. This past Monday we had some ice on the roads and there were several accidents on my way to work. For those of you who live in other states, this might sound crazy. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DRIVE IN ICE!! We close the schools down with the first sign of a flurry, and call in to work for fear we might be snow bound by afternoon! What I cant understand are the people who continue to drive 80 miles an hour, they hit a bridge, start spinning and next thing you know 4 cars are in the ditch. I hope they are more cautious this week than they were on Monday.
Have a great week and stay warm!!!
