We lived in Alaska for 10 years before coming to Virginia and Wisconsin before that, so I know what cold feels like! And "COLD" is exactly what we've had the last few days! Making it worse are high-bitter winds that blew down 2 sets of windchimes (what a noise they made when they fell) and lots of branches down around the property. We took the dogs out this morning, and for some reason, I didn't put my mittens on, which made it a quick walk! They say that if you want the best spot in the house to sit, move the cat. When we came back in our cat CC was on top of the stove--I had turned on the oven, so it was warm, and it was indeed, the best spot in the house!!
