Oh the sun is shining........................

Oh the sun is shining...................but it is freezing out!!!! It is supposed to be 7 degrees outside, but with the wind whipping so hard I am sure the windchill is below zero. We are getting ready to head over to a friend's house for a little get together. A great way to end the christmas break and a great way to have others help eat up all the cookies and candies that we still have. On the agenda for the kids are sled rides behind the 4-wheeler. I am so glad I am not a kid and I can stay inside where it is nice and warm. Wherever you are today----keep toasty.

Okay---I just couldn't let this wind chill thing go. I found this chart on the link below that helps you to calculate the wind chill factor. It is 7 degrees outside with winds of 21mph. That gives us a wind chill factor of between -9 to -15 degrees. I am freezing just reading about it.
