The weather ouside is frightful!!

January 6, 2014

I woke up this morning and it was -7 degrees….YUP- and that was WITHOUT the wind factor.  I actually think this was the coldest day that I can remember.  I know FOR SURE it is the coldest day in St. Louis in like 50 years.  I have been here 6 years and it’s never been this cold.  Sounds like it isn’t just St. Louis experiencing this Artic Blast, but also other parts of the country. 

 Did you know that I love the weather, or should I say the dynamics behind what makes us have the weather we do?  My children like to joke with me all the time and say that I should have been a Meteorologist.  I am always talking about the weather, I give weather updates, and look ahead a few days and also talk about that.  Weird right??   Maybe I should have been a Meteorologist…I think it would be interesting.

 I love the clouds in the sky.  It is not unusual for me to stop my car and take pictures of the sky.  I especially love the big white puffy clouds.  I used to be afraid to fly and now I love it.  I like a window seat so I can look out the window and see all the different types of clouds.  I always say to myself that I should go home and do some research and see what type these clouds were that I am looking at.  To see a sunset while up in the air is amazing!  I’ve seen storms, lightening, rainbows, tiny bright stars, sunrises, sunsets, snow, ice, rain, smog, fog…um what else?
