It's so cold...

.... that there is frost on the inside of my front door! Can you see the layer of frost on the deadbolt knob? The temp is up to 3 but with the wind chill it is about -17 ! A lot of our kids walk to school so the schools are closed again. We didn't get too much snow but they did all around us. Most schools in the county are closed.
I have an entry so I'm glad to say there is another door before the living room. Obviously the entry isn't heated!
Even the hinges are frosty! Do you have an "It's so cold that"...or a "It's colder than"...that you have heard your whole life? Leave me a comment and tell me what it is. The ones I remember are R rated, I'm afraid!
Jerzie and I are nice and cozy tho and having a fun day! I love the way her fingers curl around her nose when she sucks her thumb.She loves the feel of a blanket (or soft green stuffed puppy) on her face and will rub her face with the blanket when she's going to sleep.
I hope you are all warm and cozy and having a good day!
Update : Our electricity went out for about a half hour around 6 tonight. My daughter lives a few blocks away and hers was out too. Then my son called and his was out! He lives across town. He has an electric oven so wouldn't have any heat. By the time I found the oil lamps, changed the oil from citrenella to regular, found the battery operated radio and the batteries, the electric was back on. Pretty scary when it's this cold!

Mom ~ I can't imagine what the upstairs must feel like today since you don't use it. Cute picture of Jerzie.

"Colder than a witches tit" Is that too bad to say on here?
There is nothing cuter than a baby sucking his or her thumb! I remember wrapping my own finger around my nose!

It was -17F here this morning, and that's not including the wind chill factor so I sympathize with you! lol The saying here is "it's so cold it could freeze the nuts off a brass monkey" I'm going to go say 10 Hail Mary's for having typed that! lol Hugs xox

Shabby and Pea those were the 2 I remembered! I didn't know if I should say them or not so I'm glad you did!!

Zoey said...

LOL. I was going to say the one Shabby said. My mom still says it all the time.

I must say, if you had a witch inside by that door, hers would be pretty darn cold! BRRRRR

It's been almost as bad here, hovering around 0, with -8 or so windchill. I hate it.
