It's Minus 8 degrees this morning!

This winter reminds me of being a teenager in the 70's. Winters then always seemed to be this long and cold. I found this January 1977 Post in my diary to prove it, here.

I woke up this morning and for some reason I was worrying about all the birds and squirrels that usually run outside my bedroom window... Stay warm little creatures.

Stay warm!

I loved your diary, and I may go back and re-read it. My son is 13 now, but he's a very young 13.

This morning my husband woke me to tell me it was 20-something below zero with a 40-something below wind-chill. I didn't care, as I was asleep. I did hear him say his car wouldn't start, so he had to take mine.

Currently 11 below but "feels like" -29.

With all these below zero temps, I'm ready for spring, how 'bout you?

I don't know why, but I always assumed you were in the southwest... Like Arizona...

I was just thinking the same thing! This reminds me of two winters: winter 1978-79, when the snow piled up so high outside our door that we couldn't open it. And winter 1981-82, when I was in eighth grade. It happened during spring break--I spent the days shoveling snow. Couldn't keep up with it! We were off for a full week after spring break because of snow days, too...

It was actually COLD in my apartment this morning--ironically, the radiators weren't blasting away as they usually do (they're SUPPOSED to be on a thermostat).

Wasn't '77 or '78 the year of the big blizzard? I was trapped in the country and remember finally being able to drive home along a deserted and desolate highway with snow-mountains on each side and not another car in sight. It felt like a toboggan run. I've enjoyed your diary, too. It's a chronicle that captures the times. Hope everyone stays warm!
