It was -18 flippin' degrees this morning when I got up to go to work!

Yes, I KNOW it was colder pretty much everywhere else in Canada, which is why we live in the Southern Interior and not everywhere else in Canada.

I have a date this afternoon with a book, a cozy quilt and hot chocolate with or without medicinal additives. Don't bother knocking on the front door - I'm not home.
