Snags or Tags for a Frozen Night

         

              

          

                        

 

Another frigid night...the temp is already hovering at zero.  Snow is also falling.  I never thought it snowed when it was frigid but it's definitely coming down.

OCD is setting in.  I'm thinking my battery is about ready to croak in my new car.  Not that it's a huge expense but a huge inconvenience.  After work today, it wouldn't crank over for a few seconds.  Then it started but I had to reset my clock so I know something was up.  Now, the car is a 2003 even though it only has 22,000 miles on it.  Joey drove it 80 miles yesterday so it isn't like it's been sitting around forever.  I'll be talking with no words coming out of my mouth tomorrow if it doesn't start for me.  I already missed work yesterday because the bus didn't show up.  Grrrrrr to this weather.

I'm mass cooking tonight.  I have beef stew simmering on the stove and a meatloaf in the oven.  Way too cold for grilling although Joey will grill if it's double digits. 

Stay warm....Chris

LOVE these graphics. Snagged a couple Thanks for sharing!
  Colder than a stepmother's kiss, eh? LOL No offense stepmoms.  It's just a saying. LOL It was cold for what about 5 weeks,warmed up to the 40s, then 50s and today on my thermometer on the house it said 72!!! I let the girls play outside in their tutus. LOL They were checking the water temp in the pool thinking it might be warm enough to swim.  NOT!!! Stew and meatloaf.  Yuuuummy.  Rich will grill just about anytime.  I've got pics of him grilling in a BIG snow.  We have a covered patio, so he can put the grill right by the back door.  
 I'd be willing to bet that your car didn't start because it's so cold.  We've had that happen before.  Sure hope it warms up for ya kid. We'll probably have snow next week.
Hugs, Barb

I had to get a new battery last week for my truck.  It was pulling little tricks on me and it was only a matter of time before I'd be stranded.  SO I went ahead and got one.  
Sounds pretty COLD there!  Stay warm, Chris!

I hope your battery doesn't die on you Chris, I used to have a car and I know what a pain it is. It was 27F over here last night with snow forecast for today. I don't do snow, can't stand it so IO'm hoping the weatherman is wrong. Thanks for the snags, they're beautiful tonight! Keep warm, have a good day tomorrow!

I was worried over the car batteries with it being so cold.  My car started right up though this morning. Beef stew sounds fabulous.  I've never made it before.

A meatloaf AND a Beef stew?  Why both?  Or are you cooking for the rest of the week sorta thing?  At any rate, both of them sound good!  So, do you really have OCD, or where you just being silly??
