Just a few weeks ago it was still unseasonably hot here in northern Illinois, but the last week it has been freezing cold with lots of snow. I can’t remember ever experiencing such low temperatures.

Yesterday the high was -4oC and the low was -14oC with wind chills as low as -23oC. We walked to the store yesterday morning, all bundled up, and I couldn’t believe how cold the wind was. Today it isn’t so bad. Right now it’s -3oC, feels like -13oC. We went out to Kohl’s this morning and bought snow boots so we’re a little better prepared for the weather here. We used them right away this morning to shovel snow around the house. That was fun. 🙂

We’ve had a good start to the winter over here in Estes Park, Colorado We were all kind of ready for it though, something we come to expect on time round these parts.
