It's almost been this cold this Winter

Ohio Winter
It's winter in Ohio and the gentle breezes blow,
70 miles per hour at 52 below!
Oh, how I love Ohio when the snow's up to your butt;
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose is frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
You may think I'm a fool.
I could never leave Ohio,
Cause I'm frozen to the stool.

It's almost that cold here in Iowa sometimes. But the warm front is moving through today, so all is good.

That is priceless and I do remember winter trips to the outhouse on cold winter days in Ohio. Constipation ruled.

ha ha ha a cute little poem to fit this picture is a big plus for sure.

I also remember trips out to the outhouse on those icy winter mornings until I discovered the bucket can be used for a lot more than just mop water. lol

Lots of folks could say the same thing about their state this winter. Peace

I like the post. I lived in times when pots and out houses were the only option and it was very cold getting out from the covers. Central heating was scarce. But that was then. LOL

When young and had to use one of those it felt like the picture in winter when we had to bare our butt.

Dear Patty ~~ How very cold that picture looked and the temperatures are so low also. Hope it soon warms
up for you all over there.
You lead such a busy life my friend
and 5.20 is late for an appointment, and then the run around after the antibiotics. Laundry and meals take time and we do slow down as we get older. I noticed Bikerbob sent you the same e mails as he sends me.
Like you I love purple flowers. Take great care dear friend,
Love, Merle.
