Baby, It's Cold Outside

I love that song.

But really, it's cold outside. :)  Hope everyone in the path of the storm got through okay. Looks like the worst of it's gone through here. The wind's not bad at all, so the power's still on, which is what I was most concerned about.  When it's cold-cold you don't want to lose power.

It's the first teen on the moon?

Nope, it's just a snow pile in the city from the snow plows :)

Big kudos to those who go out and work in this kind of weather...my hubby, policemen, retail workers, etc. It takes a good work ethic to get out there and go when it's miserable cold like this outside.  Or maybe I just have a strict aversion to it that not everyone does. ;)  Either way...big high five to those trudging forward today, and other days like this, to keep things running smoothly.

Once the temperatures warm up a bit, lot, we'll be getting the sleds out.  THIS snow is going to be fun for sledding (and snowman building).  The silver lining in the storm, and I can't wait! :)

Shout out to them all too! It does take commitment to go out in extreme weathers like this. Have fun in the snow when you do get out Rosey!

ChatterBlossom said...

Well said! I cannot imagine doing the work they do in such conditions!

Please take pictures of the fun part as I don't do snow, but enjoy watching others have a great time.

Have a terrific day and stay warm. ☺

Pride In Photos said...

I too LOVE that song...but this cold weather is a bit extreme and for the birds♥

Brian Miller said...

ha. oy its cold here as well...the leading edge is getting to us...and the wind is cutting...i dont plan on leaving my building except between classes but i am really not looking forward to directing traffic as the kids leave this afternoon...

Janine Huldie said...

I warmed up here today and most of our snow melted with a huge rainstorm we got overnight, but now tonight it is going to get very cold again and only be in the single digits. Seriously, so ready for winter to be over and I am with you on not wanting to lose power when it is cold out.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

The amount of snow you all have been getting is insane! It's the first year I've been pretty ok with being down here instead. It was cold and snowy when I was up there and my son's county had power out for a week from the ice storm. I was actually glad I picked him up and swept him away from living in sheer blackness while it was out! Stay safe, friend!

Pat Hatt said...

Wow, that is a ton of snow, yuck to that. And big kudos to them indeed, I'd avoid any job that makes me go out in the snow

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh Rosey, I can't believe how harsh this winter has been for you guys. We have freezing temps but finally blue sky. Let's all repeat after me: This will only last for 6 more weeks, this will only last for 6 more weeks, this will only last for 6 more weeks. lol

Thank you for your fun compliments this morning! Yay!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Ugochi. I like to play in the snow, so long as I know there's a nice warm house to hurry home to when we're done. :)

mail4rosey said...

There's not enough insulated clothing in the world to make me want to work in the cold!

mail4rosey said...

living vicariously while parked on your boat, enjoying the sun... ahh, i'm jealous. :)

mail4rosey said...

even the birds are smart enough to head south ;)

mail4rosey said...

gah, I bet you're not. At least they likely won't be dawdling and it'll be over fast. :) Crossing fingers for you. :)

mail4rosey said...

The rain when it's cold makes me nervous, Janine. I hate freezing rain for driving like no other thing I can think of.

mail4rosey said...

My sister-in-law was out of power for about that long. Kudos to your son for being smart enough to get out of Dodge!! And I'm glad you got to visit with your kiddos. :) Your earlier comment about mine visiting was very nice, and so spot on. I do, like you, love the kiddos home. :)

mail4rosey said...

You and me both, my friend!

mail4rosey said...

I'm all in...
This will only last for 6 more weeks...
but ours actually stays until March. phft to that too. :)

Thanks for the visit, Renae. :)

Vashti Q-Vega said...

Oh my! Hello Rosey, that does look COLD! I was in central Florida on vacation and one night it went down to the mid 50s (Fahrenheit). We were freezing! So I could just imagine how you guys must be feeling. Stay warm my friend.

Masshole Mommy said...

Oddly enough, it went from the negatives to about 50 degrees today. So all our snow is melting, but it's going back to the teens tonite, so we should be all ice by the morning. Fun!

mail4rosey said...

hahahaha, my son lives in south Florida and he was happy to visit, and happy to beat this weather and get home. I believe he and his girl had a beach night last night, lolol

Your vacay pics were nice! I'd love to visit Gaylord.

Robin said...

My first thought: If Rosey hasn't been by Faraway Series she should go NOW. Baby, It's Cold Outside is her Battle of the Bands match-up for this time. I believe she will announce the winner tomorrow. You can get there by going to my current battle and clicking the link if you don't follow that blog.

My second thought: I am so glad I live in Florida. I used to live up north and HATED this weather.

My third thought: Yes, kudos to those people who go out and work in this weather... particularly anyone who has be outside!!!

mail4rosey said...

Those temperature fluctuations are crazy! It's def. a cold winter all around! I hope you don't have to drive in it, and thank goodness for Keurig's this time of year. :)

Optimistic Existentialist said...

This makes me want to stand on top of one of those huge snow piles!!!!

Launna said...

Have fun playing in the snow... my youngest made her first snowmanof the year....;-)

mail4rosey said...

I'm headed over to your place, and then to Far Away Series, to hear the battle. :)

mail4rosey said...

They are ginormous. :)

mail4rosey said...

Hurrah for snowmen! We'll be making our first too. :)

Lady Lilith said...

I agree. Based on the photographs, those who get out are very brave.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

No snow here but it is windy and very cold for Virginia.

Karen Glatt said...

It is not as cold where I live as it is in so many other states, and I am just praying that all the hard workers who have to go out in the frigid weather stay warm with a lot of clothes on. Wow, what a lot of snow where you are at. We are way below average for snow fall this year, we have only gotten 6 inches!

mail4rosey said...

That they are. :)

mail4rosey said...

We don't have a lot of that wind, and I'm so glad for it!! It'd be way worse if the wind was whipping.

mail4rosey said...

We got six inches in an hour. ;) No, I'm kidding, it seemed that way, but I doubt it was that much, lol. Lucky you to be having the mild winter. I'm glad someone is!! :)

Brandy said...

We are so full of snow here, we had two snow days then today this morning was too icy so they did a two hour delay. It's icky outside. I don't like the cold weather at all so I hibernate whenever possible.

Kristi Maloney said...

Totally agree....we don't want to lose power in the cold, cold either....no heat! We do have a propane stove that will work w/o power, but it's hard to get the temp. up in the big room that it is in. Anyway, today it is about 50 degrees and tomorrow should be in the teens...strange weather here in New England too. Stay warm!

Chatty Crone said...

Baby it is even cold outside here in GA!

mail4rosey said...

I'm good with a hibernating plan too. :)

mail4rosey said...

Those weather fluctuations are so odd!! You stay warm when your cold returns too. :)

mail4rosey said...

I heard GA is getting a cold snap!! The cold weather's really moving far south!

Secondary Roads said...

Snowed in here in Ionia Co. With the low temps & high winds, I'm going to wait it out for a few days. I'll have to keep an eye on the propane tank--we are already getting low. The Road Commission is plowing only paved roads, and that does not include us. Do keep warm.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Woah, that's some major snow! Love the photos and the caption. Too cute :) And I love that song, too!

Sonya M. Jones said...

It's freezing outside! 10 degrees up here yesterday! Brrr...not to mention until this morning we were up to our legs in snow. It rain this morning & washed most of if away. Gearing up for the next batch. Happy New Year!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Wow, that's a big pile of snow! I agree that kudos go to those who have to work in extreme weather. I couldn't do it, I'm a wimp and I'll admit it. We've had minus 30 temps here with the wind chill factor. To say it's cold is putting it mildly! Stay warm!

Cyndi Calhoun said...

I love that song...Baby It's Cold Outside...I really can't stay...hehe.
It's cold here in NC, too. Windchills are supposed to be anywhere from -30 to -50 tonight (we're in the mountains). Ugh. I'm cozy...but temps are DROPPING. It was 14 degrees an hour ago. Now it's down to 10. Yeeeeikes! :)

mail4rosey said...

Some plow came down our road, and they usually don't. That's nice, really, but they took down our mailbox on accident and it's buried in a ton of hard packed snow. *sigh* You guys stay warm too. :)

Justin Knight said...

Seriously, looks so beautiful from afar. Is now a good time to tell you that it's 81 degrees and windy here today?

Joyce Lansky said...

It's cold for us, too. I know 16* is a lot warmer than the rest of the country, but we're still COLD in the south.

Vashti Q-Vega said...

Come on down! I live in south Florida too!

~ Noelle said...

IT IS SO COLD HERE... BUT NO SNOW AT ALL...
WISH WE COULD HAVE SNOW - AND NO ICE

mail4rosey said...

That song's been stuck in my head all day because of this post, lol :)

mail4rosey said...

Someone else said they got that rain too. We're just up to our knees in the snow. And it's crazy cold. Happy New Year to you too!

John DeBellis said...

That is just too much snow, depressing

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I'm with you, no working in that

M Clark said...

I heard about the storms, be careful out there, but have fun playing in the snow!!

Theresa said...

We got dumped on yesterday. Now we have Lake Effect coming in tonight. YAY! More school cancellations. I am so tired of this snow already lol.

Binky said...

Everything's iced over, and it's supposed to be -25 C tonight (-40 with the windchill). But it's supposed to warm up to above freezing by the end of the week. Didn't get much new snow here.

Jen said...

Oh so cold!!! Yikes!

Colette S said...

I'm so glad your power stayed on. I cannot imagine how it is for the people without.

And definitely kudos to all these workers who have to go out and about.

And wouldn't you guess it. Just the time I told myself that I'd embrace the winter this time and bam, it's smacking all out!

I'm still holding tight. Maybe it's because of the cats. I feel when summer come, I'll weep for winter because of their potty :)

Pretty cool photo shot too!

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Oh Rosey, kudos to your hubs but I hope that it warms up soon!

Z @ Kicking Kilos said...

I am freezing out here seeing those pics. It was in the news here in India that .S is having one hell of a cold chill.

*Stay Warm*

Kenya G. Johnson @ KenyaGJohnson.com said...

This is a world that I do not know. I'd only want to trade weather with you long enough to experience sledding. We are at a rare 18 degrees right now. It will be in the 70s by Sunday.

andi said...

Bravo!!

Michelle Feliciano said...

You are very brave! We are at about 4 degrees right now and I am not coming out the house!

alissa apel said...

It's cold here to. -7 with a -40 wind chill yesterday. It's a little warmer today.

mail4rosey said...

You stay warm too. We've got that double-digit negative weather going on too. The kids are out of school again tomorrow (third day!).

mail4rosey said...

Wow, I had no idea you were getting it in NC too. Though I suspect the mts. might get it more than other areas. Glad to hear you're cozy!! We are too, knock on wood. :)

mail4rosey said...

No. ;)

mail4rosey said...

16's not warm to me. :)

mail4rosey said...

Wish we could have sun and no cold. hehehe

mail4rosey said...

digging my mailbox out was depressing ;)

mail4rosey said...

No idea how they do it, and most of the time w/o complaining. Thank goodness for 'em though. :)

mail4rosey said...

We still haven't gotten out. Kids are off again tomorrow for extreme cold. Maybe another day or two. :)

mail4rosey said...

We got cancelled again tomorrow too. I'm glad, I didn't want to go out in it anyway. :)

mail4rosey said...

Glad to hear the weather's going to warm up some. It's slowly doing that here too. Very slowly. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Def. not Texas warm. :)

mail4rosey said...

Crossing my fingers the potty stays fine even in the summer. ;)

I'm not adverse to winter if I'm warm and inside, which I am. It's when I have to go out that I'll be crying the blues. :)

mail4rosey said...

Me too, I hate him working out there in that cold.

mail4rosey said...

I've never appreciated living in a warm place more than I do now that I don't. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Sledding is my favorite snow thing, it really is fun. :) 18 degrees is cold!! Glad your warm weather's coming back!

mail4rosey said...

grazie :)

mail4rosey said...

Cuz you're smart. :)

mail4rosey said...

We seem to have similar weather patterns going on. We briefly considered a Nebraska trip over the break, I'm glad we smartened up. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I lived there for 18 years and always just loved it!! Lucky you to be there!!

Samantha Cuhel said...

It's been way too cold for us.. Stay warm!

mail4rosey said...

You stay warm too. :)

Emy Cooks said...

REspect to you all in this weather. Keep warm. we would like to try the sleighing but that is about it. Enjoy!

Garf said...

It has been really cold here also in the northern Minnesota. We have been keeping our wood burning stove running almost around the clock.

Petro Neagu said...

Those are such cool shots :)
I love snow but I hate cold so I would stay indoors too. We've had a really though Winter 2 years ago and I spent it most indoors. Not fun. Hopw your weather gets better soon.

Mistee Dawn said...

It is definitely cold. We were at -7 last night. Today is supposed to be over 20 though! Hooray for that.

mail4rosey said...

Ohh, a sleigh ride WOULD be a blast! I'd do that in a second!

mail4rosey said...

Minnesota...yep, I imagine it's pretty darn cold over that a'way too. :)

mail4rosey said...

I'd stay in ALL winter if I could. :) I've got grocery shopping to do now and I'm sooooooooooo procrastinating. :)

mail4rosey said...

I think it's funny when we cheer for 20-degrees. Believe me, I'm doing the same. Come oooooooooooon 20, lolol

Holly E said...

I live in the South and wish we had snow; that looks so much fun

mail4rosey said...

That particular moment was fun. There are other snow moments that are not. ;)

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

That sure is a whole lot of snow. We were suppose to get hit too, but most of it missed us. boy am I glad.

mail4rosey said...

And lucky!! We had a storm miss us earlier this year and I was glad. :)

Anonymous said...

We had an extra staff at work during the overnight to be on hand in case the electricity/heat went out during the worst of it. Luckily it didn't.

Jill Flinton said...

It's still a bit cold, but the wind has stopped and the below zero temperatures have gone away for now. Thanks for joining the Thumping Thursday bloghop.

mail4rosey said...

We kept our electric on too, and I was so glad!!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for coming over to visit. :)
