Minus 30

30 below

I think I’m ready for it to warm up a bit around here.  The kids got mad at me because I wouldn’t let them go sledding.  I know, I’m such a mean mom!  I don’t them them play outside when it’s below zero.  How could I be so cruel? By the way, that temp was the actual temp not including wind chill, which can push it down much further (-40 to –50). 

It’s suppose to warm up in a few days, I’m ready to to see numbers on the thermometer that don’t have that little minus sign in front of them.  And to send those kids outside!

Brrr! we're suppose to head back home this coming week, really hoping it warms up above zero there too. I'll send you some of our 'warmer' (think 19*) TN air.. so the kids (and you) can get outside :)

WOW!! And I thought 29 was cold.
It's cold for Fl but no where near what you've got..

Stay warm!

Robyn said...

At that temp it just hurts to go outside. I hope it warms up for you soon! I know when it's been 30 below here and it warms to the plus 20's it feels like summer! You are way colder there than here, this morning it is 15 above.

Alicia said...

I'm curious...what is warming up temperature to you? LOL! Because warm up temps for us is in the 80's. LOL!!

OH..and I stopped by Rose's blog and told her you couldn't get into her blog.

Cheryl said...

Oh my goodness!! That is to cold for me. It's 25 here and windy and I'm about to freeze.

Stay warm!

I will stop complaining. I thought it was cold here on the east coast. Hoping it gets to the + side soon.

Tutus and Choo-Choos said...

We actually got to the plus side here today after many days of below zero. Stay warm!

Kim said...

Oh my! I thought we were in a cold snap but we are just above 0 with -25 to -40 degree wind chills. I did let the kids go play outside but they were back in within 5 minutes. I hope it warms up for you soon!

JenT said...

Oh my goodness! And I thought TN was cold with 19! I don't remember it ever being this cold since I've been here.

Alison said...

Brrr! We don't often drop that low here. And I know that sometimes you just WANT TO SEND THE KIDS OUTSIDE! LOL!

P.S. Love the last post pictures! Very cute!

Alice said...

TAMMY said...

That makes me feel just a little better about how cold our weather has been lately. I can't imagine living in weather that cold. Of course I was born and raised and have lived in the south my entire life.

carrielt said...

OHMYGOSH! That is freaking cold. And here I complain about -22. Of course to me anything under 0 is freaking cold. lol

Pony Girl said...

Oh goodness! That is cold! Yea, it's not safe to let the kiddos expose any skin at that temp. They must get so cooped up, and I bet you are ready to at least let them play in the barn or something, LOL! ;) Stay safe and warm!

McCrakensx4 said...

Oh my that is COLD!! BBBRrrrrrr! Stay warm!

Kathy C. said...

Carin, I don't think I'll complain about our "cold weather" anymore...WOW....how do you deal with that??? You had to leave your house???? I guess life goes on, eh...nope, not for me, gonna stay here in Florida! :)

Aspen said...

Brrrrr....hope you are getting some of this warmup that we are experiencing here in SD!

Sharon said...

We hit -26 here and with the wind chill it was -38.
I am so ready for warmth.NOW!!!
I don't think it was a good idea to let them out in that temp either.
Kids don't understand the meaning of below zero and what it can do to them. It is going to warm up someday.

Farmchick said...

it was -37 here actual temp wayyyyyyyy colder with the windchill! Yup--too cold to play outside! I enjoyed catching up on your blog...I know I used to stop in here but I lost your blog for some reason. Stop over and say hi.

Hubby and I were laughing because it was 32 here today and we commented on how warm it was. In October that was so cold. Funny how your perspective changes.
