    Default Hell Froze Over

    You know they say Arizona in summer is hotter than hell. Well, the high today is 43 degrees here in Gilbert and the low last night and tonight will be 23-24 degrees. At 9 am I emptied the dogs water bowls outside in the yard after getting the ice off the top and the water promptly froze right on the ground. I know many of you are used to this, but I am here to tell you that my blood has become way too thin for this type of weather. Even the dogs can't understand this kind of cold. And with humidity only about 9 to 11 percent, it is a real dry cold like in a freezer.

    We welcomed a warm up here in Western PA this weekend, lost all our snow and did some TT drill training on green grass. Short lived but nice to get out.

    It's been in the low to mid 20's for the past week here on the "Sunny Central Coast" of California. It's warming all the way up to the high 40's and low 50's......but we have sunshine!

    We had a high of 51 today! BUT will be below zero(for lows) by the end of the week. The warm weather was not enough to melt all of our snow

    Dry cold is easier to handle than humid cold. Trust me, we know cold!
