"It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas"...EKKK? What???

It is February and Spring is beginning in many parts of the country...but not in the North Country! Bleeeehhh!

It is 13 degrees (feels like 5 degrees) and snowing really, really hard right now. They say 1" to 3" accumulation but..already seems like a couple inches on the driveway already!

I have never been a Winter fan so it is ironic we live in Minnesota. But the other three seasons are glorious here! ADDENDUM: OK, it stopped snowing...maybe more later today though!

Still going to work today...so will need to layer on the clothes.

Ever since I lost fat for insulation, I really feel the cold.

Anyone else notice the same?

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today

Lots of snow this year in PA. I am pretty sure we have had more in January than all of last winter, and its snowed every day in Feb. Ugh... is it srping yet?!!?

I know I feel the cold a hole lot more then I used to. For me in good ol southern Ontario we keep getting teased with spring like conditions only to have it ripped away but the artic blasts. Sunshine right now but snow on the horizon. Bundle up and drink those warm fluids!!

I have invested in a large number of cardigans because I am ALWAYS cold! Yes, losing weight relieves us of some of our insulation but I think it also does something to the metabolism as far as heat production is concerned. Quebec is still in the thick of winter even though we had a few thaws a while back. But things should start looking up from here on out, even if there are a few cold blasts thrown in for good measure. Spring is not far off. Keep chanting that :)

I definitely get colder easier now that I'm lighter!

You've got to love the snow. It is providing moisture and insulation for your spring flowers. Of course that is easy for me to say since my daffodils and tulips are coming up.

BUFFY - phhfffttt - move up here! Winter lasts and lasts and lasts. I can handle White Christmas...it is those White Easters that kill me!

Yes I am much colder this winter than last winter. Not having that extra 50 pounds of fat as insulation makes a huge difference. But I will gladly layer up this year. =)

I don't go 2 minutes without leg/ankle warmers - day and night.

Oh my, HCB, stay warm and toasty somehow. I don't know how you do it really. Wishing you warmer weather soon.

I KNOW! Why aren't we getting the christmas weather at Christmas. It stinks. And yes, the more weight I loose the colder I seem to be nearly all the friggin time. Good luck with your Butt Kicking! I need some of that myself. :D
