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?
