When It's 5 Degrees and You Don't Have a Car

OK... it's cold. Today's high should get up to 9 degrees with a low of -6. It's funny, we've had people apologizing to us, saying this is the worst winter they've seen here; that usually IF it gets this cold it doesn't happen until February. Oh well, I think it's manageable.

Fred took the van to work, so when it came time to walk Charla down to play with her preschool friends, I realized I needed to improvise. They only live a couple hundreds yards up the street, but there was NO WAY I was going to attempt taking the stroller out in the snow!

So I bundled up my girls as much as I could, strapped Leora onto my back, and we trudged through the snow! It wouldn't have been too bad, except for the breeze! I was sure my ears were going to fall off- when I got home the weather site said it was 5 degrees! For my walk to pick Charla back up, a friend across the street is going to watch Leora... she never complained, but her little face was so icy and red I just couldn't bear to do it to her again today!
