It was so cold that myIt was so cold that my sleeping gear included sox, bulky sweaters and fleecey sweats or Betty Boop fuzzy pj bottoms. To my dtr's disdain: NOTHING MATCHED! but I slept well. even used last year's Christmas gift of flannel sheets ...a fuzzy oversized throw and a light blanket made my "cave" comfy all night-even turned thermostat down. When overnight "big" snow predicted, I moved trash dumpsters to the patio,covered my car, treated driveway, patio and planned not to reappear for a while; checked every window, door, and outside wall for air leaks: stuffed newspaper, plastic bags when I found them; added rugs and blankets at bottom of all outside walls. Awoke Sunday to 12" (I measured it) of white stuff making opening the doors a bit of an effort: soft, fluffy and beautiful. And then had a sudden urge for SNOW ICE CREAM! made 2 small dishes: chocolate almond milk, vanilla and sugar in one; eggnog with a little Bordens condensed milk for the other. Nobody else was impressed-but I was 10 again.
