Aileen.. I'm sure you must have some great views at times, tho'.
In Aberdeen the area I grew up in was on a hill, overlooking the whole city. I'd often sit at my bedroom window and marvel at it.
Deb.. yes, life goes on. Our vehicles have block heaters, you just plug them into your electricity at night. We also have auto-starts to warm them up, the roads are cleared.
As for walking.. well, let's just say Bruce will unfortunately lose out today. The problem isn't the temperature..you can deal with that easily just by happing yourself up warmly with layers. The problem is the windchill.
Yesterday (which was a relatively balmy -15 deg C).. I had my deerhunter hat on with the top cap down over my forehead..my scarf wrapped around my face..and my sunglasses on (because the sun is beautiful but harsh on my eyes against the snow).
Brucie was my guide dog yesterday because I couldn't see a bloomin thing as my glasses were constantly steamed up with my breath.
