Here Comes the COLD! pizza pictures added!

The local news has been talking about the expected temperatures of the next few days. Here's a screen shot from for Cable, WI. It shows the projected temps for Monday. For the Celsius temp people, -14°F = -25.5°C. Either way, it's cold!
The garage wood pile is stocked and ready! Bring it on!

Updated and current weather from!!

On a happier note... One of the nice things about living way up north and away from civilization is, when you make a trip to the "cities", you make it worth while. On our last trip down, we stopped at El Burrito Mercado a small Mexican food market in St. Paul. They have a large kitchen and serve food there, as well as their own fresh cooked items in the coolers, a large grocery section, and a gift and household items section.
We stocked up on pre-made beans, rice, tamales, real Mexican cheese, and their own fresh Pico de gallo. mmmmm. So today, for lunch I had a warm bowl of rice and beans with a couple of quesadillas.

Dinner tonight was home made pizza. No tomato sauce, just olive oil infused with garlic, red bell pepper, onion, and cheese!

The First day of the New Year... Updated!

And it's starting out cold.... Maybe not as cold as some places this morning, but still cold!

OK, so acting upon Martha's question about COLD, I did some "Google-ing". It seems tht I'm very close to the cold spot of Wisconsin. About 40 miles south of me, in Sawyer County, is the little town of Couderay. It has the distinction of being on the books as having a few cold temp records for WI.

3-1-1962 .... -48°F
12-19-1983... -52°F
2-2-1996..... -55°F
2-4-1996..... -55°F

The little town of Winter, just 15 miles east of Couderay, is listed as the coldest location ranked by lowest average annual temperature: 39.2 F.....That's chilly!!!
