|Look it's about -4 degrees!|
I've got a few emails from friends and family wondering how I'm doing. Here are a few quotes that I enjoyed.
"Can't wait to learn all about an Arizona native's adventure in winter.....Connecticut style!"
"Try to keep warm, too. And a sense of humor I guess!"
"OMG Anna that is c-o-l-d! I’ve never been in minus 0 temps before."
So, what have I been doing to survive the cold. First, there's hunkering down. During the negative temps and blizzard you won't find me outside and about! I'm good at hunkering with soup, hot drinks, blankets, and snuggle dogs! But we do go out and when we do, we bundle up. I wear long-johns, two pairs of socks, pants, usually 2 shirts, a downy coat and rain/wind coat shell, fuzzy hat, mittens, and often a scarf. The dogs get their jackets, too. So, it takes me just about as long to get ready to go out as the amount of time before the dogs want back inside! When we're outside we're walking, shoveling snow :), making paths for dogs, or building snowmen to stay warm. (Jacob and I really had fun making a big snowman once the temperature rose high enough for the snow to stick together. Unfortunately, the next morning brought rain and the snowman is mostly gone.) Once you get out there and get moving its fun and beautiful, but with temperatures under 20 the dogs and I usually are ready to head back in after only about 15 minutes.

Since it is only January, I'm sure I'll have more to say about an Arizona native's adventure in winter...Connecticut style soon. How do you survive winter? What's your advice for me? As always thanks for reading and your comments!
P.S. I've added 2 book reviews, several interesting websites, and a few doggie pictures to the pages section of this blog. Hope you enjoy!
