-5, minus 5 degrees, brrrr… cold!! It hasn’t been this bad in a while. My pipes in my house freeze up at 8 degrees. Yup! Run the faucets continuously and hope for the best. We were traveling. Great! Our cousin kept the water running. In my car the seltzer cans froze and expanded and exploded. Fortunately the operative word was frozen! So too did my thermos of coffee, our drinks in plastic cups, and the jugs and bottles of juice – all frozen solid. Neat! And the worst was the wind shield washer fluid froze. It’s no fun driving around with salt covered wind shields.
Hey! I got a pigeon in flight alighting upon the bird feeder in Ohio. Hmmm? A long way from home? Take a picture. It took a while for me to realize that I had documented the cold on the outdoor thermometer. Everyone’s always talking about the weather…yada yada.
