Snowman Wishes

Just in case you all don't have snow - Chloe wanted to send you a little snowman!

40 Degrees – Italian cars in California won’t start. People in Indiana drive with the windows down.

20 Degrees – People in Florida wear coats, gloves and wooly hats. People in Michigan wear long sleeves.

0 Degrees – People in Miami cease to exist. Folks in Wisconsin have their last cook-out before it gets cold.

-20 Degrees – Californians fly to Mexico. Minnesotans get out their Winter coats.

-40 Degrees – Hollywood disintegrates. Girl Scouts in South Dakota begin selling cookies door to door.

-100 Degrees – Polar bears migrate to Antarctica. Old timers in Iowa start saying, “Cold nuff for ya?”

(Yes - and it's only a balmy 5 degrees today - we have a long way to go!!!!)

Awwww . . . thanks Chloe. Mya wants to share her cup of snow too. Here, she says, as she moves a spoonful toward the computer. Silly girl

Glad Chloe likes the snow too.
I love the temp comments.That is soooo true,people in Florida think they will freeze if it gets into the 30's. The national news is all over it and we would run around with long sleeves. Makes you laugh.

Looks like you are having a lot of fun! Enjoy all that snow!

It was 32 yesterday morning on the way to church. Rick was working the parking lot and came in when he couldn't feel his toes anymore. Everyone whom he greeted told him the different temps read on their car thermometers. They ranged from 27-32 degrees. His bible was cold all the way through. He was wearing gloves, though. He's from Michigan originally, so he is not unfamiliar with snow and he loves to ski, but we packed our snow gear after we got back from China.

The big problem is with the citrus crop. Our local orange farmers are very concerned that their crops won't survive the freeze.

My Toyota minivan started up just fine, though! :)

Teresa - you got it figured out - YEAH!!! I must agree - that is cold for you guys! And we don't want that citrus crop ruined - we love our oranges!! Hopefully it warms up for you soon.

Emmie - hey, you got out of bed to enjoy your snow day!! :)

NEWSFLASH: We people in Florida think we will freeze if it dips into the 60's! But that doesn't mean we don't love it we just aren't used to it. ( I am really pathetic cos I am from the UK at least hubby was born here)

Please tell Chloe thank you for sharing some snow with us. We love it.

All I can say is, you are weird! LOL But that is only because I love 85* degree weather. Warm sunny days with a slight breeze, chilled drink of some sort and a palm tree in sight is good too! Sigh.....not until March 23rd I'm afraid! Then we are off to Maui!

Happy you all are enjoying your snow over there -- Gosh, Chloe looks cute in all her snow gear.

We had a little snow today, but mostly rain with a little freezing rain. Yuck.

What an adorable picture of Chloe!

Kris said...

You are right on target with the Miami comment! Too funny... I'm much further north in Florida, but we get out our coats and gloves at anything below 40, it's true!

So glad I found your blog, you have a beautiful family and that brown eyed girl is JUST precious!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
