Brrrrrrr

This is how we dressed in Milwaukie, Oregon today. We went for a nice walk about noon and it was 32 degrees. Freezing fog wasn't as widespread as it was Friday morning, so the roads weren't as slick  because the metro area is drier now.
The hat Joe is wearing was his winter Greyhound hat. He's glad he hung on to it all these years. Doesn't matter how cold it is those wheels "gotta be clean".
 I don't think I will go to church tomorrow. Joe  has to work anyway, and with this cold weather and lots of colds and flu, I tend to avoid crowds when I can. Viola has a routine Dr. appointment Monday and I'm going to cancel that because I don't want her out breathing the cold air. Good place to pick up a bug is in a Doctor's office. Sounds like a lot of my blogger friends are dealing with this big freeze and flu bugs.   So I'm praying your rigs stay warm, and those of you that have the bug will recover soon, and those who don't have it, will be spared.

  2. Good to see Joe's keeping his ears warm. That's always important for me when it's cold out, too. Yup, you're right about all those germs and things. Avoid as many as possible. Stay warm and dry and thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my I'm so sorry to see you both so wrapped up in winter weather equipment. Wish you could both just stay inside until it's over.

  4. It's cold here, too. Freezing at night. But we stay warm inside the trailer. The flu is spreading in California as well and, I don't attend big gatherings any more. No fleamarkets, casinos, restaurans etc. Sounds boring, but I don't want to catch the bug at any cost. I rather stay at home and read a good book, walk the dog and meet friends for a chat outside in fresh air.
    The only hazard is shopping for groceries. Best done early in the morning.

  6. It was 30 degrees this morning in Quartzsite. That's much better than the prediction. With the furnace running all night, we kept pretty warm. I hate that freezing fog. I've mentioned to others before and many don't know what it is. We sure had more than we wanted when we lived across the bridge from you in Vancouver!

  7. Take care and keep warm. Has been pouring rain here all night. Just hope the big freeze doesn't happen with all this water on the ground. Would be some skating rink out there.

  8. Here's a joke for you. We traveled from northern Wisconsin to winter in Lake Havasu Arizona. Yesterday at 9am it was 38 degreese here and 39 back home. Did we waste our money, coming out here? I hope not!!!

  10. Cool here in the RGV too but so far the flu has not made it this far. Warmer days on the horizon.

    In the meantime - keep each other warm . . . good snuggling weather!
