You know it's cold when... (Part 1)

1) the locks on the INSIDE of your house are covered in frost;
2) you sniff outside because, well, the cold air makes your nose run, and your nostrils stick together;
3) you can't blink outside because the water in the corners of your eyes freezes instantly;
4) feet? what feet?
5) IF your car starts, you drive around on what feels like square tires all day;
6) even the kids and dogs don't want to stay outside for longer than absolutely necessary.

It is cold if the kids and dogs don't want to go outside. Yuck!

Ah yes, gotta love Canadian winters!

Thanks for visiting my blog! It looks like we have a few things in common. :-)

You win. Frozen locks inside??

(Add to the list – when the mice head indoors. I think I’m beyond your suggestion of using “Hire a Husband.” I need an exterminator. I’ve seen three mice scurry across the kitchen floor today. I got the screaming-meemies… They win.)

Brrrrrr.... That sounds real cold. We woke up to snow today and it's falling again now. It's probably only a couple of degrees below freezing though. My sister's brand spanking new boiler has packed up. She is cold!
