Our previous low had been 8 degrees last week but by 6:00 last night the temperature had dipped to 10 degrees. The clear sky was a sure indication of extremely cold overnight temps and, sure enough, the old thermometer was reading less than zero this morning. At our house it was minus 2 degrees.
Now that's cold!
We kept the woodstove cranked all night to help ward off the chill. I woke this morning feeling under the weather and am now moving sluggishly through my day while navigating on get-you-well-but-make-you-sleep-like-a-baby medicine.
The forecast tonight is calling for snow. We've had one small snow so far but everyone is waiting for the big one. This isn't supposed to be the big one but at least it's snow ... and it's been so cold it won't go anywhere anytime soon.
