Hi everyone !
Just wanted to say hi and that I am catching up on all the reading.
It has been quite the Holiday season for us here in
South Dakota and I know so many are having severe weather as well !
We had a blizzard over Christmas that has been compared to the last bad on in 1965 so the old timers tell me about it at my job!
I hope you are all staying warm and I think of you everyday.
Love, Anne

I know you always get it worse then we do here in the Twin Cities although we had enough over the holidays and now had nasty snow with the frigid weather in MN too.
I am so in need of the sunshine and warmth on my face.  I have Raynauds Syndrome second degree to use of beta blocker for many years.  Raynaud's is a disorder that affects the blood vessels in the fingers, toes, ears, and nose. This disorder is characterised by episodic attacks, called vasospastic attacks, that cause the blood vessels in the fingers and toes to constrict.  For me an attack is usually triggered by exposure to cold and here I am in living in the tundra.
I use my husband's hand warmers and have to put one in each mitten to keep my fingers warm so they will function when I go out in this kind of weather. 
Just a tid bit there......................hope you warm up soon.

Okay BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! I am so tired of snow and negative temps! I told everyone I wasn't shoveling this year. Figured the 18y/o son could. Well guess who took a 9 day trip to the East coast right before New Years! Yep that's right, the boy did! I think he senses this stuff and gets out of town. One of these years I will get a plow for the tractor. Figure that will be right before I move back South.
