How Cold Is It?

Tonight the temperatures are going to drop down into the single digits.  After dinner I turned up the thermostat and put on an extra layer to keep warm.  The cats are huddled together on the couch.

It's so cold that. . .
  • Starbucks is serving coffee on a stick
  • Lawyers have their hands in their own pockets.
  • My car won’t run, and my nose won’t stop.
  • Police tell a robber to freeze, and he does.
  • We had to chisel the dog off a lamp-post
  • Levi Strauss started manufacturing electric jeans
  • The squirrels in the park are throwing themselves at an electric fence.
  • The optician was giving away free ice scrapers with every new pair of eyeglasses.
  • Hitchhikers are holding up signs with pictures of thumbs.
  • The Amish are buying electric blankets.

    1. As far as I know the schools around here didn't pull the plug, but they have cancelled for temperature issues in the past.

  4. Those were funny, lol! I recently experienced cold when I woke up and discovered ice on the inside of my windows. My heater had gone out. Thankfully, it's fixed now.

    Curl up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate and a blanket, and try to keep warm!

  5. My sincere sympathy. We've had our share of single digits and minus zero temps here in Idaho this winter. Stay warm!

    1. Eileen, I'm sure to an Idahoan like yourself our weather would be nothing. I guess it's all relative.

  6. Lol! I saw a meme post on facebook this morning with a picture of the Frozen characters. It said something like, "It's so cold I saw these two in my front yard."

  7. My daughter did tell me that in Chicago, this is the 2nd time in 2 years that they've had to close schools. I taught there for 19 years and can count on 1 hand how many times they had to call a snow day.
