Burrrrrrr,,shiver, shiver,,,

See that white x up there? --------
That's about where I live, I'm right under it. That large swoopy thing on there is the jet stream and we southern folks here in Arkansas perfer it when that large swoopy thing stays up there in Northern Missouri somewhere. The air, it does have fangs tonight, and it's taking a big old bite out of my delicate southern constitution. Heck, I've even had to dig around in the closet to find my warm, fuzzy lined, Canadian moccasins that Kat sent me awhile back. Those ones are right toasty!

Now, below there is the forecast, and you can see from it that we'll only be having a couple of days of bitey weather. You can also see from this the major reason for the constant confusion
we have about weather in Arkansas during the winter. By Friday it'll be feeling like Spring again. Of course, next week we could have that dreaded stuff, snow, ya never know around here.

Hey Ms. Brenda, we've got the same forecast for tonight and tomorrow night, but supposed to get up in the 60's during the day. Looking at your map, it doesn't look like we live that far apart, but maps are deceiving I'm thinkin'. Stay warm! :)

Brenda said...

If you live in the FL panhandle, then it's only about 7 hrs drive Miz Sally. You stay warm too!

Phyllis said...

Stay warm!! How did the black eyed peas turn out?

We in Wisconsin are having some of that global warming coming by Thursday. It is supposed to be 25 then. In the meantime it is to be anywhere from 10 to 20 below tonight. And our high tomorrow is to be 12.
We have our share of snow. It started two weeks ago with 8" and then the next day 4", and then about 2" every other day.
Want to swap areas???

You know I'm about 3 hours north of you, and our forecast is pretty close, but we're a bit colder, and yep, it's makin' me shiver for sure! The wind isn't helping either, the temp right now is 18 degrees but the wind chill is 4 degrees!

You can't even imagine how it is here in the winter! I never knew it got that cold where you are...Happy New Year, Brenda!!

Good Morning Brenda,
Girl, it's cold outside this morning here too. It is 20 degrees with a windchill of 12 degrees. The high is only suppose to be 32 degrees for today and then back into the teens for tonight. They say by the weekend it's going to be in the 60's. That's Arkansas weather for ya huh? I sure would love to have some snow. I won't believe it till I see it tho. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. Stay inside and stay warm. May God Bless You and Yours.

Those peas were some fine eatin Miz Phyllis. Was rather gassy around here last night.

I lived in Minnesota for a year when I was 6 Miz Betty. I've never forgotten the Winter/snow/drifts/COLD and how happy I was to see Spring arrive up there!

You live in a land of weird weather too Miz Marylou, but it's SO beautiful up and over where you are. I envy you.

Just 3 hours Miz Jazzi? We need to set up a meeting for sometime this summer ya know.

I was an AF brat Bermudabluez and I remember that very cold, very snowy, winter in Duluth, MN. I'm a summer child, I want to hibernate when the temps get below 65. :-)

I think I will stay indoors today Miz Karen. Brrrr, it's nipplie down here too.

AndiePandie said...

Happy New Year Brenda! :D We're getting cold weather also and got a bit of snow yesterday.

Brenda said...

I thought I was going to be able to stay inside all day Miz Andie but now there's a possibility that I'm going to have to brave the cold to go get tags and registration for James's new truck,,dammit.

Tammy said...

We just now had a heat wave and we're up to 17ยบ...talk about shiver!!

I'm sitting here eating a chocolate cupcake. I've been to several blogs that are on diets today and dang it they just made me hongry! Hey, I need the extra padding up here in the shivery north!!

Have a great day Miz Brenda!

I live in Pennsylvania under that same jet stream. It's really cold here today. I'll be walking on my treadmill today - not going out at all.

I can't respond to my email till something gets fixed.
What if he was Jesus?

Brenda said...

Miz Tammy, I'd hibernate all winter if I lived up in your neck of the woods. :-)

If he was Jesus Miz Cassie, then he had $10 to go towards helping the next stranded soul. :-)
