So, this morning it was colder than it has been here in ten years! (Why me?) The temperature got down to -22F/-30C. Local schools were closed, so my kids were very happy, as was I. (K would have been skiing with her class today, and I'm glad she'll be able to do that when it's a little warmer.) Many of our windows were iced over--I couldn't see out of the kitchen window at all. With the icy windows, piles of snow outside, and long icicles dangling from the sides of the house it's almost reminiscent of Varykino in Dr. Zhivago, although not nearly as pretty.
