It's HOW cold?


Here in the Midwest, we're enjoying a lovely blast of arctic air this week. The temperature right now is -10 with a wind chill of -31. Hard to believe, but tomorrow is supposed to be even colder. Schools all around the state are closed due to the dangerous wind chill.

You know it's cold when poor Lily positions her body over the furnace vent and lets the hot air warm her tummy!

Whoa! I wish we had vents in the floor! I have a heated cat bed, but I refuse to sit in it for even a second.

Like Daisy I have a heated cat bed, that I keep at the foot of my bed where Alex can keep me company while I'm sitting at my desk. Unlike Daisy, I'm not averse to warming me feet on it when Alex is not using it ;)

I'm also not averse to standing over the open oven door after I've baked something :D

More often than not Alex uses me as his personal heater (nope, I sure don't mind!) - his ears get so cold!

ROTFL! We watched a friend's very small dog this weekend and she camped out next to the baseboard heating vent in the kitchen and let it blow on her back (and the rug underneath warmed her tummy). Made cooking a bit difficult! We kept tripping on her;)
