Greetings, Inspy Romance readers, from the Great White North where we had an amazing cold snap last weekend! And I think we weren’t the only place to find the mercury on our thermometers plummeting down toward where Fahrenheit and Celsius meet… -40º! We didn’t get QUITE that cold here — I think we bottomed out at -30C (about -22F), which was plenty cold enough, thank-you-very-much, especially when that arctic front came in on a nasty wind that rattled our house, took out the power for several hours, and froze a couple of waterlines!
I know many places throughout the continent had it worse than we did. I’m thankful for natural gas and that we aren’t completely dependent on electricity to stay warm and fed when the lines are down.
Did the extreme cold hit where you live, North Americans? And I know our Aussies and others in the southern climes are having summer! Seems strange when it’s so cold here!
One thing about the cold — the skies are often the brightest blue imaginable, and the sun glints off the snow so it hurts your eyes. I love that part, even when the dog and I can’t handle being outside for any longer than it takes him to do his business…
