The Coldest Day

At least the coldest day in CO in the eleven or twelve years we’ve been here.


The kids are off from school, which was cancelled yesterday afternoon in anticipation. The news called it a “wind chill day” instead of a “snow day”. They were joking, but also warning people to stay inside. I agree, and couldn’t get closer for this picture.


Luckily there’s no wind, because in the shade on the back porch, this says about -16F. The sensor on the chimney says -14 in the house, and that’s at 9:30am. Tia says it was -20 when she first got up. It’s supposed to move through quickly, so it should start warming up.

Lucky there’s no wind, and not much snow. This could have been a nasty storm.
