Bitterly Cold Air To Come In Waves Across US Into Next Week

Yeah, it's cold in December, what else is new, right?

Ran across the above pic on a Facebook post by Lauren Otradovec of Glenburn, North Dakota from earlier in the week.

Yikes! I can't imagine winter getting worse than that.

That picture may be from Florida -- drifted white sand.

Hi Cube. It's been a time since I got into your blog. Sorry about that. I was reading about the cold winter. Well it's really cold here in Amherstburg, Ontario Canada. Tomorrow we are suppose to receive 5 to 7 inches of this beautiful( I'm kidding ) snow. When I was a child, I loved the fact of that much snow but now that I'm 67 years of age and unable to do what I use to do, now I hate it. Looking at it is OK but having to shovel it is another problem. Enjoy my friend. Keep warm. See ya.

Cruisin Pau

PS I'll be leaving for my Caribbean cruise in January and the I'll enjoy some warm & enjoyment. See ya.

The past several years, everything that happens with the weather is made into such a big deal i never know when to believe them. It's cold, but it's almost winter, so it's supposed to be, yet they try to sensationalize it so. All the crying wolf makes us not pay much attention any more, except that i do bring in my pet geranium.

LL: It sure looks like sand, doesn't it.

Paul Pietrangelo: Hi Paul. No worries. I bet it's cold there and 5-7 inches in more than enough to cause trouble even with hardy folk like you who know how to deal with it. I grew up in NYC and loved playing in the snow as a kid, but, thankfully, I never had to contend with it as an adult. That's why I've lived in Florida since 1968.

I bet you can't wait until January. It should be beautiful in the Caribbean then. Hope you and Mrs. P. enjoy your cruise!

. Messymimi: Weather has been sensationalized for years, just as the news has been. Global warming/ anthropogenic climate change is one of the biggest fake news stories of our time.

I do keep an eye on the weather because good meteorologists do get it right most of the time. Even a broken clock is right twice a day :)

P.S. Generally geraniums grow best in daytime temperatures between 65 to 75 F and nighttime temperatures between 50 to 60 degrees F. It's good to keep an eye on the cold temps for your pet one ;)

here's the naive L.A. girl; what's cold about a DOOR picture?? What am I missing here in L.A.?! (other than hideous bitter cold and snow!?)

Z: Look across from the door. There is an imprint of the door in the snow. It's piled up against the house!

I hope the cat wasn't out.

One of our stray cats (of 2) moved into the house 4 days ago. Apparently, he gets weather forecasts from somewhere. The other won't even come into the garage so I made her a box wrapped in black plastic, covered with fiberglass insulation, and wrapped again in black plastic. with just a house facing slit opening for her to squeeze through. She's probably texting all the other strays right now....

I've seen some pictures like that, mostly from Russia or Buffalo NY, or N Dakota. Oofta as they say up there.

Kid: Cats don't mess around with fake news.They only want the straight stuff.

Hope your stray does ok in the Cat Cave you made. Put some catnip in it and he'LL never leave ;)

Cube, she's doing Ok. We thought she'd be the one to move in as she always wants me to pet here when I go out. She must have been domesticated at one point or other. The guy that moved in won't let me touch him, Very feral, and whaddya know he is the one that moved in for the winter at least. I'm thinking she has been seasoned, where he has not. All I can come up with. She'll be fine now. We may put a hating pad in there if it looks like some wicked cold is on the way, but she'll be lovin this insulated cathouse.

That picture makes me glad that I gave up my chickens. Now there is no reason that have to go outside this winter.
