"Preach the gospel at all times; if necessary, use words." Saint Francis of Assisi

This morning it was 34 degrees (1 Celsius) when we woke up.

It's been in the 30's every morning for the last few days. Seeing your breath in your house makes it hard to want to get out of your warm bed in the morning and it's hard to want to take a shower. It isn't the funnest thing but this is our 10th winter in POA and we are accustomed to it.

The cold also tends to make people stay together, bundled up for warmth at night. It's kind of like family bond time. We are hanging out together, close together, sometimes with big blankets on and always keeping the gas floor heater on.
Thankfully, we haven't let the cold keep us from goofing off.
The cold also makes us want to go to bed earlier than we usually do. Getting under the covers and getting warm has been very appealing lately. Sometimes we don't make it to the bed.

This has been a common trend the last few nights.

So, who's the guy who is not a Blume kid?

P.S. I don't miss that weather.
