Waving good morning to you all as I attempt to shake a groggy from my head that even a pot of coffee wouldn't cure.

Ward was kind to me this morning. I didn't have to get up until 4:15.
Car #2 is at the shop getting the brakes serviced, so I had to drudge out in the subzero temps to drive him to his buddy's house to catch a ride to work ( thank heaven it's not Chris's week to drive ).

I don't know how many of you are cmaping enthusiasts, but this diva's definition of camping involves a hotel room, cable television and a wake up call at 9:00.
We have a meeting tonight to discuss Jennah's classroom camping trip.
Some sadistic genius decided that it was a grand idea to pack up sixty third graders and go camping for two days in FEBRUARY.

It seems that they will be sleeping in heated cabins ( if they were not, she would NOT be going ), but that is about all the indoor time that they will have. They're even ice fishing for part of their dinner. ( YUCK!!!! )

In the land of subzero wind chills and temperatures that hover in the low single digits of late, the last thing I want to imagine is my firstborn frolicking outside for hours on end. And yet she couldn't be happier about the idea.

There's no easier way to stand out in a science thematic school than to be the only parent in the building ( and I'm not kidding; if there is another one, they've been smart enough to stay silent ) who does not and will not camp, unless there's a substantial bribe involved. LOL



..and now that I have rambled pointlessly, you may all return to your regularly scheduled programming.
I'm gonna go slug down cup o'java #2 and hope that it kicks in before the subliminal beacon eminating from my couch wins me over.

I started laughing loud enough that Braedy came over to see what I was looking at, and said "what's wrong with that kid? He looks like a monkey!"

And you're right, people will call that nasty little window licker adorable.

Our county closes all schools mandatorily when the wind chill hits -32.

We're halfway there and I'm miserable. I cannot imagine what you're going through, Laura Jean! *hug*

Can you splurge for a taxi / have someone pick you up versus waiting for a bus? It's too damned cold for you to be outside in this for more than a minute.

I seriously thought it was a photoshopped conglomeration of a Trollkin and a small child.

Mel is driving in to pick me up both today and tomorrow morning You will probably cringe when you hear this, but I have yet to turn my electric HEAT on....My little ceramic heater is doing a heck of a job Although I think I will turn the regular heat on during the day today.

Madison's Policy is not to close unless there is a Wind CHill Warning, and they don't announce it the night before. It's crazy. THey have to wait until 5am to call it.

YIKES _ just got a -40 wind chill reading! Seriously, businesses should CLOSE in this kind of weather. The low tonite is going to be -28. I think I might be starting vacation one day early.

I honestly don't remember it ever being this FRIGID. Something for the scrapbook:

I (and my DD) am a camping enthusiast, well within reason. I do have to have a place with toilets and showers and a pool, I don't exactly rough it, but certainly more so than Yoorah. (I have a little pop up trailer I drag behind my car, in other words, no amenities, just a wee mattress - I gave up tenting after 1.5 summers of sleeping on the ground - OUCH)

Oh yes, my point... even though we all LIKE to camp, I am not sure I could agree to that trip. I certainly would not volunteer to chaperone! Yikes! (Around here they won't even let the kids have recess outside and that is only about 20 minutes, so I guess I don't have to worry about this ever coming up.) Other than the ice fishing which could certainly be changed to just plain fishing, why don't they do this trip at the end of the school year?

Madison's Policy is not to close unless there is a Wind CHill Warning, and they don't announce it the night before. It's crazy. THey have to wait until 5am to call it.
What sort of power does the ceramic heater use? just curious...

I like the fluttering eyelashes - can you get her without the sign? (the sign is cool, too, don't get me wrong)

Just plug it in to the electrical outlet on the wall, but it takes much less electricity than the actual heat does I actually did turn the heat on before I left this morning.

Made it into the office, I was outside about 2 seconds
