  16. Nice. It's 6 degrees here. 6! Pretty sure our groundhog is going to be pulled out frozen of hypothermia.

  49. Great Picture. Think I'll try that. It has been a long time since we have seen the sun. Five more inches of snow yesterday. Up to 75 so far and it is snowing now with freezing rain mixed in. Suppose to last all day.
    Hurry Spring.
