Sleepy Sundays: It’s Gonna Be Cold

It’s Gonna Be ColdIt's Gonna Be Cold

A decent portion of the country was buried under snow this weekend. In our area, the temperatures plummeted to single digits at night. As I stepped outside to check things out, I couldn’t help but think of those less fortunate. What about the people without heat? How would they survive? etc. The stray cats in the neighborhood even crossed my mind. I worried for their little furry behinds and how they were coping with the arctic freeze.

When you have a loved one, hold them close. Don’t wait until it gets cold to do so, either. They may not always be around.

Have you ever experienced extreme cold? What was it like?

Have a chill-y Sunday!

  1. Very sweet post! It warms the cockles of my heart 😉 (whatever ‘cockles’ are?!). Seriously though I too would worry about any animals outside in this weather. Luckily I haven’t seen any strays around where I live, and my 4 pets are all cozy indoors – like me! Baby it’s cold outside! Cheers, Gina

    1. As of today, I’ve still only seen two of the poor kitties. 😦 (I think were about 5.) Thankfully, it’s starting to reach more normal temps now. (Still cold, but we can survive outside without twitching & shivering like wet birds.)
      Thanks for stopping in, Gina. ♥

    1. I was meaning to update everyone about the kitties here today – so I’m very glad you mentioned it, Michelle.

      I just saw two of them today so, (thankfully) those two are safe & well. I would love to take in one or two myself but, sadly our landlord doesn’t allow pets.
      I’m going to try to see if I can find them a good home. I’ll keep updating in this comment thread about the condition of the rest.
      Everyone’s concern about them has me so touched. It’s good to know there are still caring people out there.

  2. Starting this afternoon, and until Wednesday, it’s supposed to be below freezing with wind chills dozens of degrees below zero. I haven’t experienced cold like that since I was in grade school. It will be interesting to see how it all goes.

    1. You’ve lucked out, Jaded. Today it’s going up for a short while, but Tuesday it won’t go above 12 degrees F for the day & 1 or -0 for night.

      The news said there’s been something like 16 deaths related to the night temps. It makes me worry about the homeless & animals. Sigh.

      Thanks for stopping in.

    1. I like autumn cold. Winter cold is nice too but when it gets to single digits…I’m definitely camping inside for a while.

      & I’m still worried about the lil’ kitties too. If I see them again soon I’ll post something in this comment thread. 😀

    Yes, it’s definitely going to be cold for a spell. It doesn’t take long for the cold to do damage either. Your trees are cold, but they are really pretty.

    I locked myself out of my truck in a blizzard once. I was only wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and a light corduroy jacket. No hat, no gloves. I didn’t dress warmer, because I knew I’d be warm in my truck. Ha! The tow truck took almost thirty minutes to show up. It was very uncomfortable, and I was worried about frostbite. We need to be prepared for anything in this kind of weather.

    Stay warm and bundled up for the day!

    1. Sade is one of my all time favs too.

      I love your cold story even though it’s brutal. I remember getting sick as a kid because I stayed out too long in the snow. My feet had to be soaked in warm water & my skin was beet red.

      Stay warm as well, my dear! Cuddle up with some coffee/hot chocolate for me!

      1. I forgot about that. Mom used to put our feet in warm water, too. We’d sled ride for hours and then not be able to walk because our feet hurt. We sure had fun though. I’m off to bed. I’m going to have Gregory Porter sing me to sleep. 🙂
