Yikes that is cold!
When I lived up North I froze my feet once or twice. Now they turn purple and white if it gets below 20f outside. Won't be moving up to your area anytime soon.
Get Abbey some little doggie Sorrels.

Good morning Tony. Looks like we were lucky here, temps are now at 45F at the moment and lots of rain falling. Should soon quiet down a bit outside as this system moves north and east of me.

We did not see any snow but buckets of rain. Lucky us.....

Hope you keep warm today with those cold temps. Its not much better in the DFW area of TX, at my sister's in south Dallas county, its only 24F this morning....burrrr...glad I am up here.

Have a safe and quiet day dear one. Keep warm.
