It's so cold out there!

I thought I should start scraping current events other than my own family and friends. To begin with; this year's weather!

We've broken records for snow fall and now for cold. Yesterday I took this picture to show just how deep the snow was. (Click on it and you'll see it better) You can barely see the landscaping lamp it's just buried in the snow! I just love this photo. So I'm scraping it here with a little tidbit on today's forecast. This should be interesting to read in August! It reads:

Forecast for Thursday, January fifteenth.
Subzero over the metro area -- this winter's coldest to date and more than 30-degrees below normal. Sunshine, but stinging northwest winds 10 to 22 m.p.h. generate dangerous wind chills of 20 to 30 degrees below zero. The first full calendar day here since Feb. 3, 1996, to remain below zero. Clear, bitterly cold at night. Lows: minus 16 at O'Hare: 21 below coldest outlying areas.

Most of the elements are by Vinnie Pearce; the flower, the dots, the "diamond" and the smaller "snow flakes" wandering about. And another all time favorite designer Anna Aspnes. Those are her flourishes in the upper left hand corner and behind the flower.

Thanks for looking!
