December 22, 2008 | Iowa,Weather,Winter

No school today.

No, it’s not a Snow Day. It’s not snowing.

It’s a Zoinks!-It’s-how-cold?!? Day. Or a By-the-time-we-get-the-buses-warmed-up-school-will-be-over Day. Or Your-ears-will-pop-off-your-head-in-two-minutes Day.

How cold is it? Depends who you ask.

That was first thing this morning. The Internet is telling me it’s still minus-17 degrees out there.

Ah well. I guess it’s like the snow. I laugh when they say how many inches of snow we got. How do they know? It could be 2 inches or 24. The way the wind blows it around, it’s hard to tell.

We’ve got 3-foot snowdrifts next to the house and a 6-foot wall of snow in back.

Now if it would just warm up (I’d take, oh, 10 degrees at least), the kids will have tons of fun digging and building forts in all that snow. They also want to build a snowman. Heck, they can build a whole village of snowmen out there.

    What was I saying about farms and Iowa? I think the romance is over. Reading your posts has scared the bejesus out of me.

    Oh, Merry Christmas. We have all of our Norwegian treats baked, cooked and ready to eat on Christmas morning.

    God Jul, or Gledelig Jul depending on which you prefer.

    I think this is the part where I welcome you to the neighborhood again.
    And, call me crazy, I love being snowed in. Provided I have stocked up on food and we don’t lose power. There’s something nice about hanging out and having some cozy time in front of the fireplace knowing you aren’t missing a thing “out there” because everyone else is stuck inside too!
