Tuesday my brain finally had a chance to thaw out at 34 F degrees.  Wednesday was below freezing, but warm enough to remove one of two hoodies in my Artic Coat combo before going out.

Last week was a complete wash, in very icy conditions. I did no unnecessary outings, n spent the Blizzard Day Off inside. The power was out only for an hour after everyone else was asleep.
I was fine with all my battery devices n hot water bottle.

My last week's Day Off errand run was the day before the big storm, n consisted of empty shelf shopping for an hour at the market. People went nuts clearing out the meat, milk, n bread sections.

Even worse, I ran almost empty on kitty treats! These 4 kits here are spoiled getting some every night after the dogs are put out back for the night. Usually when I arrive back home after work. Really they torture you when they don't think they got enough, by meowing in the hall n waking folks up. Now I am spending too much on their stuff, n skimping on my things...

At least it is still too hot at work. But getting back n forth in sub-Z, 1, 2, or 4 F (out of the wind), was challenging. Everything not immediately shoveled froze into ice, complete with frozen footprints n tire tred tracks n was so difficult to walk on.

This week's thaw is going nicely so the sidewalks are almost walkable on the short, lumpy, snow- ice. 

I have been taking very few photos lately. I wanted to get closer to the sea-ice flows, but I chose not to spend so much outdoor time due to the temps. Now it is melting alot.

I took some terrible pics thru dirty wpndows, with a reflection showing. One is used for altering today. There's the digital bank sign showing the high temp for that day after the storm. Plus one while leaving of the walkway out of work the other night. The entire walkway covered by inches of ice. I've never seen it so bad before.

50 F but rainy today... I'll take it !

Ouch that looks cold! And I wouldn't like to be walking or driving on that ice. If you are going to have a power cut, good that it's at night when everyone is in bed!

We hit high 60s but the wind is howling outside now and we are back to freezing and cold weather. I feel so sorry for the birds, but do not scrimp on your health due to howling cats...you do not want to be that old cat lady.

Gran Annie, Mo one can count on normal weather at all these days! We are in the 3rd week of the frigid temps here. Yay for a couple days of melting thp! Good luck keeping warm!

LLcoolJ, 4 layers of coat, 2 scarves, 2 pants, hat , n gloves needed - or risk frostbite. At least the power came back on! thanks

Tabor, was warm Thursday, but back to 20s today again! Have not seen many birds except swans n ducks on the ice in back of Main street, n couldn't get close for pics.The cats don't belong to me, but no one else gives them attention N they don't let me sleep! I am still very sleep deprived. Thanks
