Leah J. Utas said...

How about that proper winter weather?

sage said...

That's cold! It was only -18C here this morning and the coldest we've been this winter is around -25C. Stay warm!

Hilary said...

Brrr.. but you make bitter cold look beautiful.

Paul C said...

Wow, that's cold...and it's heading to Ontario...not good. Great photos of the ice palace.

Farm Girl said...

Cold does that. I still remember sticking my tongue to my Grandma's freezer. Ripped the hide clean off, as she said. Never did that again.
Stay warm and keep the head unfrozen. :)

texwisgirl said...

Oh dear, dear, dear. But you did take some lovely photos! Love the swirly metal scroll and the light fixture. :)

Rural Revival said...

Marginally warmer here but the heater went in my car this morning...it may as well have been -50, I mean once any feeling is gone does it really make a difference? : )

Nancy said...

Oh my -- I will stop complaining about our measly -10F this morning. I'm surprised your camera didn't freeze up! :)

Farmchick said...

Whew, too cold!!

Kim-Stuff could be worse said...

That is cold!!

Jimmy said...

Love the extent of your thoughts :) heres hoping to summertime pictures soon although these are great.

darlin said...

The weather is so unpredictable, it wasn't that cold here this morning thankfully. I hope that we don't get that cold again this year. Enough already! Great photos!

Trisha said...

That is crazy cold! Your brave for leaving a warm home :)

Trisha said...

Oh!....Forgot to mention....LOL about your boys getting stuck "only once"! I am waiting for this to happen here. Every year I have to convince the girls "you really can get stuck. Its not just from a movie! Don't try it!!".

Judy said...

Love the photos. I think only one of our kids ever did that, stick their tongue on cold metal. Our grandson did a couple of years ago, I think he learned his lesson too.

CountryDreaming said...

Methinks I would have preferred ice skating to swimming at this point!

Cat said...

WOW!

Laura said...

Hi Dawn-

Thank you so much for coming by my blog.
Since I live in South Texas, I can't relate to the snow- even though Texas has been colder this winter.

Your photos are wonderful!

Canyon Girl said...

I got really cold reading this. And it made me remember childhood warnings from parents about sticking your tongue on metal during those cold Swedish winters. Cold, but not this cold, they were.--Inger

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Congrats on the POTW! Good for you for still getting out and swimming. Think you earned some "relax by the fire" time!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Snow, snow, snow! Is there anywhere it's NOT snowing? I've been out all morning getting rural snow pictures...and we have more due within the hour. Getting ready to call in to work.
Stopped by from Hilary's to say congratulations on POTW!

Barbie said...

Sticking tongue to frozen metal objects OUCH. I can't even begin to imagine -46 Brrrrrrrrrrr

Anvilcloud said...

I came from Hilary's to enjoy your winter that looks a lot like ours. Winter photos seem to have made their mark today.

The AC is On

natsu said...

wow...that's cold!!never experienced that cold weather.Stay warm!!

Rick said...

Ohhh - THAT's cold ! And those photos look freezing !

I recall -43.6C in Calgary - withOUT the windchill. And I also recall being one of those adventuresome (but still a bit naive) youngsters who tried the tongue on the metal gate stunt - I was tongue-tied for about 10 minutes until my mother could come down with warm water. And no, I didn't try it a 2nd time ;-)

Mahon said...

I like your photos !
Very beautiful with the snow, it gives these images a charm ! :))
And -46° put your scarf !

Bye**

Lynette said...

Your photography is so good...come on now...give your friends some tips;-D

Life with Kaishon said...

I love these stunning images. How fun. I have never told my son not to stick his tongue on metal. We must have lucked out as we have not had to experience that! : )

Meg said...

Oh my goodness, and I was complaining about it getting chilly as the sun went down last night. Hope you're staying warm! :D

Land of shimp said...

As a fellow swimmer, I say with great conviction, "Holy crow, lady, you're brave!!!" I think I'd have crawled underneath the bed, suit in hand saying, "I'll see you again after the thaw!"

Good heavens, even the pictures give me the chills...but in a pleasant way :)
