From the Frozen Tundra...

School was cancelled due to an air temp of -20, wind chills up to 50 below here in the northwoods (But not before my diligent husband was at his desk getting report cards finished at 5:45am!). The kids are still snuggled in their beds, I got to have a quiet devotion hour and ahh... another day is before us.

Going with the "freezing" theme of the day, I thought you fellow Wiconsinites might enjoy this- and you who don't hail from the cheese-state may come to appreciate how hard core we are!

Ah, this is funny! But it's a bit inaccurate. My DH was grilling this weekend when it was -15.
