Oh Rhonda, Please be careful up that ladder! Extremes of temperature do it everytime for me too.
We are in a heat wave in Sydney, beautiful hot days and everything swells accordingly!!! But for the COLD. Get all your heat packs out, nuke them in the microwave and sit wrapped in their joyous wamth!
I'm trying the ice treatment instead. Snow sounds romantic to me but I know dealing with it must be hard. I've only experienced it a handful of times in my life when we were living in Ireland. So its a novelty.
Best wishes though, keep your head up, keep looking out at the beauty of the world and remember you are not alone and you are much loved and appreciated on this site, golitho
