Welcome February!!!

Last night our "high" was -16 and schools all around are closed.

Don't let the blue skies fool you.
It's a lie!

The best part about February 1st?????
January is over!
Amen!

That's what it looks like right now, but I haven't been outside yet!

T said...

no matter what I say right now you'll never believe I sympathize enough.

so I'm going to walk outside into my garage in bare feet... to show you that I feel your pain.

and then I'll run back in and turn on my heat dish and wrap in my cozy... to show that I have a brain.

just call me jo said...

I know. I know. Idaho in February is dicey. Bundle up and hang on.

Now those are some icicles what am some icicles. Makes me shiver a little to see them. Sure hope you get some warmer weather soon...come on spring, huh? Stay warm and safe.

Valerie said...

Amen!!! I thought January would never end...seemed to stretch on For-Ev-Er!!!
Cold and windy here too~ what a way to start February. :)

Lisa said...

Amen is right! HALLELUJAH AND PRAISE THE...well, maybe that's a little blasphemous. And even though our temp right now is 10~on account of it's almost noon, you know~I will take it, because it comes on the wings of blue sky instead of inversion. A sight for sore eyes.

Julie Harward said...

Here too..and very windy today, maybe we will finally get some snow! Our winter in in the spring. Stay warm! ;D

jen said...

It must be cold up there. Our high tomorrow is supposed to be 48--about 25* below average. I can't imagine what that will do to you guys!

Happy Mom said...

annie valentine said...

January has been the longest 47 days of my life. Amen to February.

Lisa Loo said...

annie valentine made me snort my crystal light....

Valerie said...

Hope you find some fun things to do inside because it doesn't seem like you'll want to be staying outside any time soon! Great photo of the icicles. I'm very ready for spring (the little tiny bit that ever visits Utah).

i am SO sick of winter!

lifeinredshoes said...

We are a balmy 13 here today.
I officailly hate the cold.

Boy Mom said...

AMENSo glad January is over. Freakin' hate January! February is being a little fickle this year with sunny skies and temps in the teens but still I'm with you, freezing February is still way better than January.

LKP said...

amen indeed! :)

wendy said...

Man those icicles look like something right out of TyranisaurausRex. or however the hell you spell it.
Some big dinosaur dude anyway.

Rexburg is always stinking cold...I think it is just a misplaced extension of Alberta.

Bring on the HEAT.............Puleeeez

Ann Marie said...

I say...Next year we do a blog retreat in CA or AZ in January or February....

g.suzie said...

Empty Nesters should be somewhere

DCHY said...

I can relate! Never a fan of January...unless you're in the South where it's warm. ;)

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Amen!
Now, how did I end up in this state again?

Cherie said...

One step closer to Spring!! Hello :-D

Beth at Aunties said...

I am so GLAD I do not live in Idaho anymore...we are basking in the warmth of 10 degrees tonight!
You made me laugh! AGAIN... As always and the tune of a 'It's a small world after all' come blaring in my head. I am happy to claim 'Hide Away Girl' as my precious gift amongst her brothers.
Good luck making your ♥ quilt.
Also I enjoyed catching up with your beautiful family and wedgies(your kids are so much like ours, HEAVEN HELP US:} I just wanted a caboose even if she destroys violins so Hideaway Girl would have a sister. Little did I realize the three amazing sisters she would get when those yahoos married. :D

Sherrie said...

It's been very cold here too. I think right now we are at -27 below. We don't get days off though. I'm really glad January is over because it is that much closer to spring and warmer weather. Stay Warm!

Nezzy said...

....and just 46 blessed days 'till spring. Baby, were packed down in ice and snow here on the Ponderosa. Great snowpop pics sweetie!!!

God bless and have a warm cozy kinda day!!!

tammy said...

I am freezing with 46 degrees. Really.

blueviolet said...

You had a point about the end of January being here, but dang....February is rough.

gigi said...

So glad January is OVER!!! But today brings another death in our ward and I'm the compassionate service leader. I've been to sad for my liking.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

January went by so fast! At least Spring is supposed to come early.

Emmy said...

Oh those icicles look dangerous!

M-Cat said...

YAY for January being over and YAY that we are already 4 days into Feb. I know I shouldn't be wishing for time to speed by, but baby, I need it to be AUGUST!
