One High, One Low


The Democrats came out in record numbers and Barack Obama won the Democrat side of the Iowa Caucuses. Mike Huckabee won the Republican side. These are two very different men with very different ideas about the path the United States of America should be on. I am rooting for Barack Obama. But John Edwards made a strong showing in a squeak-out for second place leaving Hillary Clinton just barely in third. It all works for me. I want John Edwards’ voice to continue to be heard in this vitally important presidential campaign.

The photo above shows the temperature in our kitchen: 57.6 F (14.2 C). It also shows the temperature right outside our kitchen in the dooryard: - 3.1 F (-19.5 C). Tonight, the strong showing the Democrats made in Iowa will have to keep us warm - that along with two cats, lots of blankets and a friendly spouse...

Hi DMM -
Some winters we get away without any below zero days. But most winters we get a couple of cold snaps where the mercury plummets. I confess those periods of time make me appreciate all of our creature comforts. Clearly, I was born not a moment too soon!!!

Oh that's cold. That's very, very cold. I've never even been below about 5 deg C +. I think I would die!!!

Hi Sue -
It is very cold! Luckily, we don't get that many per season. And right now, we're in a warm spell.
When I lived briefly in Minnesota, it was so cold your eyes would tear up when you walked outside, but the tears would freeze if you stayed out in the icy wind very long! That was really cold!
Enjoy every minute of your summer!!!
