Negative

This is what my car temperature gauge was reading about an hour ago when I finally made it home. Today was a marathon shopping day, since I had not even began my Christmas shopping. Whew!!! We shopped for 9 hours straight, but we are ALMOST finished totally!!!!! YEA!!!

I need to clarify something. My dear friend, Friar, mentioned in a comment that he thought I liked snow storms. I DO like snowstorms. I LOVE the snow. I do not enjoy temperatures that kill people. Growing up in Texas - I always dreaded that August heat...so hot that people did actually die in it. Now, being in Montana, I dread the negative temperatures, so low that people die in it. I don't know, when I think of dying, freezing to death is not real high on my list of preferred ways to go. I am just a wimp like that I suppose. :)

I think it is crazy that it can be sunny and stay below zero all day. The warmest it ever got was negative 4 and the sun was out all day. I understand that the clouds actually can make it warmer and blah blah blah...but it still just doesn't make sense in my pea little brain. When I am in my house and look outside at a sunny sky that is so bright it is blinding, I don't expect to walk outside and feel my eyeballs begin to freeze. Call me a Crazy Texan at heart, but folks, that just don't seem normal to me!!!

I hear it is suppose to get colder by Thursday. Oh boy, me and my eyeballs can't wait.

I've been complaning about the cold, but it actually got up to 58 yesterday! Still, that's rare, and I miss warmth.

It is very cold in your neck of the woods! We are suppose to be in the low 20s this week.

It's weird, sometimes when it that cold it feels warmer than when it's in the 30's.
Maybe cause I'm numb.
