I'm ready for the chinooks now, these are cold winds we are getting now.
The typical Nov - Jan cold and hard.  I am watching the wind blow snow off
the church across the way right now.  It makes you feel cold just watching
it.  Glad I'm inside and I didn' t leave the puppy out today.  Today is his
first full day left inside the whole house with the cats on the loose.
Can't wait to see what the house looks like at lunch time.
