It is cold here. Numbingly cold. Hell-is-freezing-over quality cold. I believe that today in Green Bay we warmed to a toasty +1 degrees F…but that doesn’t factor in the brutal wind chill factor. I was–reluctantly–out and about and can tell you that every single penny spent on the heated seats in my car was a splendid investment. However, despite the ravages of the cold here in Green Bay, there is little snow on the ground and this means that my snowshoes are still hanging in the basement.

I expect that I am whining to the choir on this score. The Minnesota branch of La Famille Wabi Sabi is also under siege by the same bitter cold. My family in Atlanta will be looking at single digit temps tomorrow. Our New Hampshire tribe has endured not only great cold, but over 10 feet of snow so far this winter.

Which brings me to my friend, Karen, whom you’ve met in these posts before: the last time we were together, we were poking around in the abandoned saw mill. Yesterday, her home of Marquette, Michigan was awarded the dubious title of “Snowiest City in America,” having logged over 150 inches of snow so far this winter.

    It currently is -13 at my house in the “Snowiest City in America.” What a brave Wabi Sabi you are to face the cruelest of elements to bring us these lovely works. They are intriguing.

  2. Plenty cold, record cold, where I am and we have had snow but nothing too bad. Horrible winter all around.

    What an honor for Karen to win the most snow award. Couldnt happen to a nicer person.

    You always make me giggle. Loved the yellow accents in the photos.
    We have it very cold here -8 or -9.
