It is hard to believe how cold it is when it gets this cold.  I do have to say that I do enjoy the sun on these cold crisp days.  This morning the sky in the east was pink, the sun bright, and the snow sparkled with diamonds.  Having said that, the moment you step out of the car the cold goes right through any kind of coat you may have on.  You don’t want to walk for any length of time with your cheeks to the wind…they will be frozen within minutes.  There is nothing more cozy than a warm house on a cold winter’s night with a good book on Eastern Religions and a good cup of tea.  My sister Joanne and her husband Dwight are basking in sunny Kauai.  I must admit they picked an awesome time to be away.  Oh to be dealing with a sunburn instead of windburn from the wind!!!
