Now I love my dog, Buckeye, but taking him out at 2 AM with the winds about 20 mph, and the wind chills below zero is not fun at all... Luckily he doesn't like the cold either and doesn't waste time. I need to start getting back into the winter mindset while taking him out... Last year, I had a dedicated pair of hat and gloves. So far, I haven't done that just yet.
Wind chills right now are around zero across the area, but temps will fall slightly and winds will pick up, so the morning will have wind chills around zero, or slightly below. This afternoon, despite "warming" up into the upper 20's, it will feel like the teens, at best, with the winds remaining steady from 10-20 mph.
It is hard to believe that Christmas is only two weeks away!! I still need a little shopping for Dawn and our parents left to finish. I have all of my siblings taken care of, and they are normally the hardest to shop for.
Keep warm out there, and remember, only 14 days left!!!
