Ken- I think this winter has been harsher than usual. I don't remember schools ever getting closed this much. Looking forward to that winter vacation!! Stay warm!

I don't know if it's just me getting older or if this winter is really just that much harsher than usual, but my body is not liking it one bit. Uff, stay warm everyone!!!

I don't remember it being this COLD for this LONG. They said on the news this hasn't happened for over a decade! I'm soooooo ready for warm weather!

It never bothered me much in the past, but this year's deep freeze kept me completely indoors. As soon as the sun starts rising, I'm heading outside with the dog.

I'm too much of a wimp to make it outdoors during this extreme cold. I am hoping to get some skating in this weekend since we are "warming" up.

I'm also curious if there are any outdoor exercisers on this team that manage to get out in this cold. I know they exist, because I see them outside biking, running and walking. I'm just not sure how they do it! I take my exercise indoors in October! Hahaha! Stay warm everyone!

I'm too much a wimp to even go to the gym when it's -45 windchill. I miss my gym workouts, but I dont miss sitting in a freezing car for 3 hours waiting for the tow truck, and you are cold for 2 days. I can wait 2 days until the polar vortex passes.

I will do something in the form of a video workout. It kind of depends on how long the cold snap lasts...more than a few days, I'll buck up, bundle up, and have fingers crossed that the car starts, the tires stay inflated.. and no accidents.

But then... I'm a CA transplant.

This will always be a good topic for discussion in the Twin Cities- especially now as we go into a deep freeze! Wow!

I'd like to hear from those who will still go outside to get their exercise. What will you do? Is it safe? Will you change your plans? I'm curious, because I'm a wimp. To the gym I will go!

Be careful out there!

I'm soooooo ready for warm weather. Looks like that won't happen for another 3-4 months! I'll have to go where it's warm!

My tomatoes took forever to get growing this year, so I would love the heat to stick around for awhile, BUT, maybe dial it down to the 80's so my AC can keep up?!

Wish it could stay around instead of the 40's or 50's they say we should get this week. It has been lovely letting the windows open and getting some fresh air indoors.

Before the last snow; I'd noticed that my daylilies were just starting to poke up out of the ground. Hopefully, after this snow melts, they'll be ready to go with some sunshine and warmer temps!

Even though the ground is covered with snow and it's only 38 degrees out, today's bright sun still gives me hope that spring is right around the corner!

Our neighborhood roads are not plowed yet. I sure hope we don't have a cold and wet summer in store for us.

no joke. they haven't plowed out our parking lot -- I'm stuck in a spot and DH is stuck sort of cross-ways out of one, after about a half hour of sliding around. :(
