Baby it's cold outside!!!

The temps have certain dropped in the South, that is for sure!! This morning it was only 15 degrees when I woke up and it isn't expected to get out of the 20's today. I know some of you in more northern areas are saying it is much colder here. Well for Charlotte, NC that is really cold this time of year. I really think my North blood has finally thinned out for the Southern clime we live in. I guess 6 years of living here does that to you.

To make matters worse, my section of the building I work in doesn't have much heat! This morning it was 55 degrees in my office!! My office plant doesn't particularly like that either!

The North Carolina mountains were able to open their ski areas back up-so I guess that is a good thing-boost that NC economy!! It does make it seem more like Christmas too with colder weather. Other years we've lived here it seems like the colder weather is never going to make it here-so that is a nice change.

I guess tea and coffee sales are up too because of the sudden drop in temp, which is also good for the economy! I know I have been making more tea in the office to keep warm and alot of other people are too.

Well I've got to run now, the HVAC mechanic is here and I need to talk with him about getting the heat back to normal in my wing of the building. Everyone have a wonderful day and keep warm!!

Oh my, trying to work with no heat isn't fun. It's really cold here in Canada- I've got two pairs of pants on and get all bundled up to take the puppy out. Not a good time for puppy training, that's for sure.

Our temps are just like yours. Today it's in the low-twenties with snow falling. Your blog header is beautiful. Just about the clearest picture I've ever seen. I could almost touch it!

I know, Sherri, it's freezing! I hope you get some heat in your building. Keep drinking those hot drinks.....I've been drinking coffee and hot chocolate!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
