It is absolutely gorgeous outside.

But looks can deceive.

It's 4 degrees.....below zero. Brrrrr.

Taking a deep breath makes the slight moisture at the entrance of your nostrils freeze and tickle. It makes a little creaking sound when you flare your nostrils. I'd never known such a thing until I moved to Montana. My nostrils never creaked in Texas. I guess I didn't know what I was missing.

Thank goodness I came to my senses.


  1. Liz- Your snow pictures put mine to shame! I was so excited we got some snow/ice, then I saw yours.. granted, I don't know how my gas bill would handle that -4 degrees, but I sure would love some of that real snow up there!! It's be in the mid-20's here & I've been bundled up inside all day! I don't know if you saw my new posts or not, but you will probably laugh at our "snow" compared to y'alls!! Tell everyone I said hi! Love you guys!

  2. That is beautiful, and a lot colder than what we have here. It's only been in the 20 over here in Ohio. Not near as bad as what you have.

  3. Well, it's not always this cold. But January does show us its icy face sometimes. Hope all is well and thanks for reading!
