Snow and cold ... brrrrr

ColdRemember how I wrote about the super nice weekend last week? Yeah, that of course was a fluke. We went back to January weather this past week. Brrr. Today the high is only 27F (-2C) and the temp this was morning was around 15F (-9C) with the windchill making it feel like 2F (-16C). Yeah, not really looking forward to going outside this morning. It's supposed to be cold pretty much all week.

This past weekend we also got some now. Really not all that much. Danbury got about 3 1/2 inches (8.5 cm) But it was enough to make the roads a mess of course. We went out to lunch at Rosys and by the time we were coming home our road hadn't seen a snow plow yet. We live on a crazy hill so without any sanding or plowing you can pretty much forget about it. We did try but made it barely half way up the hill. Ended up going back down and parked on the cross road at the bottom of the hill. Not really very far up to our house so not a huge deal. The mayor had declared a snow emergency (which really is ridiculous for 3 inches of snow) so technically we weren't supposed to park on the road. But there were a bunch of other cars parked as well so we took our chances.  Worked out ok as our car was still there Sunday morning. :) 

Sunday the weather was actually pretty nice. Sunny and above freezing so it melted some of the snow already. But now it went down to crazy freezing temps so whatever is left of the snow will most likely hang around for the rest of the week. It's Martin Luther King Day today but neither Mike or I get it off so business as usual for us really. Let's see what the week brings I suppose. Not sure I am ready to face another week but you know, it is what it is. Right? 

Not too much else going on really. I don't think I wrote on here yet that I booked my next Europe trip to visit with my parents. Will be going towards mid May, spending a few days in Croatia and the rest in Austria with them. The weather should be pretty nice by then in theory. Definitely looking forward to the nicer weather months. Never been a winter person. I know some people absolutely love the snow, skiing, snow boarding, all that. Yeah, never really been my thing. I know, I know, I am probably one of the few Austrians who doesn't ski. lol. 

Anyway enough of my babbling. I better finish my tea and get on with it to get ready for my Monday. 

Letter/Mail Update: All caught up with my mail for now. :)
