Spotlight Friday: oh….it was so cold

yes, the last few days where very chilly down here in South Carolina, we broke the record from 1924.

Wikipedia said:

The 2014 North American cold front—or popularly, polar vortex—is an ongoing extreme weather event affecting parts of Canada and the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, extending as far south as Central Florida.[2] An Arctic cold front, initially combined with a nor’easter on January 2, left heavy snowfall and broke coldest temperature records throughout the United States, leading to company, school, and road closures and mass flight cancellations.[1][3][4][5] Altogether, roughly 187 million people were affected in the U.S., along with nearly every Canadian east of Alberta.[6]

The term “polar vortex”, when used for the effects of a large cold front like this, is misleading and a misnomer. The polar vortices are circulations that exist over both poles at all times. This event does not refer to the formation of a new polar vortex, but to the movement of the permanent Arctic polar vortex.

What did you do to stay warm?

We bundled up. Luckily our  Winter break was until Tuesday, so the kids had their first day back to School with a 2 hour delay. Can’t have the kids standing at the bus stop with this frigid temperatures.

We kept out thermostat on the cooler side, about 65 during the day and 60 for the night. Our electricity company had a few problems and quite a few had lost the electricity. So they asked everyone to “tone” it down. We watched movies and had quite a few cups of tea and hot coco. Cuddled up on the couch with some extra blankets.

so let’s see what Zibbet has to offer for those cold days!

  1. I warmed up just seeing these awesome things!
    I don’t know how you stood only 65 and then 60? wow.
    When our house reached 64 we were SO cold we couldn’t move off the couch from under the quilt! It didn’t help that we didn’t have hot water either.
    I guess it is still the Caribbean in me that needs it warmer than 65.
    Good picks here, and thanks for including my stick shift cozy!

    1. Raige we put on lots of layers.And where happy we didn’t loose electricity like others. And usually I don’t handle cold like this easy but to keep the moral up I had to.
      Warming up this weekend is what I am looking for, temps are supposed to go in the high 60.

    1. Nancy, the funny thing is we lost the electricity two times last night. All of a sudden, and it was only in the 40.
      It has been raining and soggy all day today, and I can’t wait for Spring either. Have a good weekend.
