If you were born in January in the north, you were probably six months old before you saw the outside. The thermometer on our deck is too cold to show the temperature. Our windows are all frosted up and we can't keep it warm in our family room (where the really good TV and DVD player are). I can't remember the last time it was double digits below zero. It amazes me that the birds haven't just dropped dead from cold, but they are visiting the feeders in their usual numbers. My sympathy goes out to those who have to work outdoors in weather like this. Our postman must have frostbite on one hand. I have a heated birdbath that freezes over - can't take the cold. The peanuts in the peanut feeder have frozen solid, I have to go outside twice a day and beat them free. The snow crunches underfoot - that crisp noise it makes when it's so cold that your nose hair freezes when you breathe. All in all not a good day for anything with warm blood. All I have to do today, besides make a card for a challenge, is to go and check the mail. I may put that off until spring. I'm a firm believer that the climate is changing - due to what, I don't know. Only scientists and history will tell us that, but right now I'm having trouble saying "global warming". It was only right that I do a self-portrait of me looking out at the birdfeeder.
