Oh my gosh! Is this freezing temps what it's like in Canada all winter? Weatherman said this happened back in 2015. I don't remember that. Thank goodness February is a short month. Just too bad March is so long and dreary. I think we've had more sunshine these past few weeks than we've had all winter.
Keep warm all of you who are affected by this arctic experience. Those of you who aren't affected by it, I want your address so can come visit. Just kidding. Have relatives in CA , AZ, & GA.

It's really cold today, but tomorrow the temperature starts rising to a balmy 8C (47F) by Wednesday. Time for some flooding. eeek

Baby it's cold outside... what an understatement!
Happily I am a hermit and do not go out into the cold.
Others are not so fortunate. I am in the same general weather region as @Merrywiddow just a mere hundred or so miles south in Ohio. Law enforcement,  first responders,  utility workers and others like them must be outdoors to do their jobs.
The homeless and strays do not have much choice either.

We were right in the middle of all that freezing weather. Thank goodness it is almost done. They are calling for a freezing fog this morning but then a warm up to near 40 fahrenheit this afternoon. It will be close to 60 on Wednesday.

Our heater decided to quit working last evening. Hubby did all the regular things he does to check it and we made sure the LP gas had not gotten too low. I guess we will be calling the heating an cooling guy later this morning. At least we got through the deep freeze before it pooped out on us. It's always something. Sad

Everyone is doing fine. No terrible cold/flu this season. I and my son did get flu shots and I really think it has helped.

I've been knitting and playing sims.

Hope you all are well. Heart

That is what scares me ... being without heat even indoors would be a horrible experience. Hopefully your heat will be restored before another cold snap.

My furnace did quit working a few winters ago. On a Friday night, of course. Thought I'd be getting a new furnace but he repaired it with a few expensive parts.  Evidently the humidifier shorted  things out. Cost was close to half a new furnace and I was back to having a large pan of water simmering on the stove to keep dry air at bay.  When my son and granddaughter were visiting from GA  they bought a little humidifier/mister for me and it seems to do the trick.
     This cold weather has been mostly keeping me inside.   Doing an oil painting class one morning a week for 3 weeks this month. The old jeep has been holding up just fine. The first time I took it out in the frigid below 0 weather I had to stop at the mechanics on the way home to get air in my tires.  Very relieved it's been OK since.  
      I'm having trouble with shoveling snow as it's got a lot of ice in it and very heavy to move.  My son with the plow blade has had to come over a few times to clear the drive, especially the snowfort that gets built up at the bottom.  
      I'm really looking forward to Spring.  Hoping to get a flowering shrub or two for the back garden and hoping my son will help. I didn't plant or dry enough herbs last fall and ran out 'fresh' thyme and dill and Basil.  Gotta see that that doesn't happen again.  
         Keep warm and stay healthy.

We did get the furnace fixed the next day and it is still working, thank goodness!

@Gramcrackers  Snow removal is such a pain. I have been battling our long lane (with a steep hill) all winter. It's either icy or mushy. sled

My son and I went to see a couple movies today. They have recently refurbished one of our local theaters with cozy reclining seats and table trays. Pretty snazzy.

I've been working on knitting a shawl this winter. It is slow going since it is a fingerling yarn and a fairly small needle. If I am lucky, it will be ready to wear by spring. Well, most likely in the fall. Maybe next winter. witch1

Wishing everyone well BigHug

Long time no see! I was happy I had wrote down my password for here because I totally forgot it. confused

Hope all is well for you ladies! I have been on the down side of life the past few months but I am trying to take control of my life again.

Thought I'd come here and check out some of EQ's challenges to get back into my sims and also to say a "howdy". So, Howdy!

Here's hoping for warm sunny skies in our future! sunny

Hi, everyone. hello6   Good to hear that everyone is well.
           I've been busy but  not accomplishing much.    It's been hard to feel like painting on a regular basis but did get two small paintings (10" by 8") yesterday and last month another small one.  Have some more small paintings and some large ones and will be so relieved when I can get them finished.  Have already picked out my next project. wacky
    Have been playing Sims again with the new Strangetown.  Found lack of information to do some tasks frustrating but 'Carl's Sims' site  saved the day and I think I'm on the last leg of the tasks now.  Watching all those pink pollen's float  around town make me want to sneeze!

Hi Gram hello6
Your painting hobby sounds relaxing. I hope you will share some of your work.
StrangerVille is a fun town and I enjoyed playing thru the mystery.
I did find lack of tool tips (hints) on how to complete tasks a bit frustrating.

I'd love to see some of your artwork too Gram! I don't have the eyesight anymore to finish the paint by numbers I started many moons ago.

Welcome back @PallyStyle ! I hope things continue to improve for you and your family.

I hope you share your paintings too Gram. I love to paint but never seem to have time.

Thank you, @Buttonsginger! It's a work in progress, but we will get there.....I hope. Laughing

I had considered taking up painting. I may still give it a whirl if we get to move this year.

I too, would love to see what you have done, @Gramcrackers.

I would be glad to share some of my 'better' art work. I am still 'growing' my skill. When I have more time I will attack that problem I have uploading photos.

I hope things are better for you Pallystyle. Rough times are the Pitts.

I am sorry about your eyes, MW. I hope they won't get worse. Seems a lot of my choir members are having problems. and have had cataract surgery. I haven't yet. One member has Matricula Degeneration so they enlarge his music for him.

I did like the challenge of Strangerville. Found it a little stressful at first. Got tired of the dreary music and atmosphere. I just don't like dark worlds.

Spring is coming!

Hej hej!

Nice to hear everyone is doing well.
As for the greeting: my new hobby is learning another language: Swedish.
Since Johannes for sure will stay there I have to adjust. I found a group of six that learn the language too, we have a lot of fun, but learning goes slow. On the other hand the slower one progresses, the better the memory. Oh well I think I could travel to Sweden now, find a hotel room and not starve. giggle  That's something!
My cat's are well and growing. The tomcat has over about 15 ponds right now, the cat about 12.

Gram, I'm so with you that the music and the darkness of strangeville get's to the nerves. I wish we had a switch to toggle the story play on or off. The world is so nice and I would like to play it 'normally'.

I'm looking forward to seeing your art work Gram. My eyes are actually improving with treatment. I just need a lot more light now than I used to when younger.

Your cats are adorable Le. Good for you, learning another language.
