It is so *&%$(^#@!? cold. -13 with a windchill of -35...right now.

Richard didn't work yesterday, today and isn't working tomorrow. Too cold. Not good for the old finances. He just came off of a 2 week lay off. He did plow snow this morning from 1-6:00am. Would've plowed longer but lost a U-joint and had to come home. He fixed it this afternoon. Thank god he has mechanical abilities!

We had to get a new tire for my car yesterday. Seems like it is always something. And that something isn't very often good. I don't know, sometimes it gets to be a little much, having so much bad luck. We smile through it all, but it's not always easy.

HI Denise, It had been so cold here in Mn too. We had -27 with wind-chill it was -45 to -50. To darn cold.

It has warmed up a wee-bit for a short time. It was 15 above yesterday, knock on wood. LOL

I hope things start to look up for you and your family. Seems like it is always something eh? Here too. I can relate all to well.

Take care and have a great week.
