    Question How Cold Are You??

    Right now I checked my weather app on my cell phone. The temp for the Detroit area is currently sitting at -5, feels like -27 with the winds as 16MPH. When I was drivinging to work this morning, my dashboard registered at -11.

    I also have a blanket wrapped on half of Tango's cage so he doesn't get a draft..

    I'm grateful that the car started and that I made it to the office. Just wondering how others are dealing with these frigid temps?? BRRRRR!!!!

    I feel bad for all of you over there freezing and hope you all stay warm inside. I live in the mountains in Northern California and we are surprisingly fairly warm here today at 48 degrees with a low of 33 tonight. 3 days ago we had the freezing cold weather that is now on you but the coldest it got here was 29 degrees. We were at Lake Tahoe and it was 15 there.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I feel so sorry for the folks living in Minnesota with temps at -38 degrees.
    Almost feel guilty for enjoying weather in the 70's here in the desert.

    Prayers going out to those in the cold!!

    When I left for work this morning, my dashboard was reading -12. Last night about 10:30 pm everyone is SE Michigan received a severe weather text alert asking to lower your thermostats to 65 degrees. Apparently, a compressor at a natural gas station failed and caused a minor explosion.. Great!! John my husband told me that Hell would have to freeze over first. Well, in Hell, Michigan, same temps were reported and I can seriously say, Hell did freeze over in the mitten state... And they thermostat is still holding at 72 degrees.

    Am in San Francisco. When I feel cold here, it is no way as bad as the weather where you are at. The current weather there has been on tv lately. It is really cold. I hope it warms up for you soon, and does not become this cold again.

    I think the polar vortex is ready to leave. When I left for work this morning, my dashboard registered at -2 and it felt warmer.. I know, right!! Suppose to be in the 40's this weekend!! Whoo-Hooo... I think I am going to break out the flip flops and shorts.

    Poor Tango!! I have been keeping the curtains closed in his room to keep the heat in and the little guy just loves looking out the window.. On top of that, he is molting.

    Hey Ellen - Hang in there, you should be warming up too!!! It will actually be warm enough to wash the car..

    Now... It's Superbowl Weekend.. The only time I watch football.. I am rooting for the Rams.. I always root for the underdog!!

    Glad it's going to warm up for you, Carolyn!
    How about getting Tango an IPad so he can watch a movie or something since he can't look out the window? I bet he'd love it!
