According to the National Weather Service our area is experiencing the longest lasting cold snap in 20 years. There have been 13 consecutive days with below freezing temperatures and a few of those days have had record breaking cold.
Here in the deep south, we get cold snaps, but they usually last only a day or two. It has been a huge adjustment to have to wear layers of clothing, gloves and jackets for days on end.
One minor issue we face is what do we do with our jackets? As I woke up recently one morning, this was the first sight I saw:
Apparently, this is our solution - throwing our jackets on the back of the couch! It would be nice to blame it on the boys, but two of these jackets are mine!

Just For the Joy of It
But my joy today comes from a slow warm up to our seasonal temperatures which do not include numbers below 32! If you are one of my northern friends, you may be laughing and calling me a wimp! That's OK! My joy today is being from the south!
