The Deep Freeze

by Houndstooth on

Like a lot of places, we’re still experiencing some serious cold weather here where we live.  Fortunately, we aren’t getting bombasted by the snow like the people living on the East Coast.  We’ve had our share of snow, but our problem is the wind chill.  It feels like we’re living in the deep freeze all […]

The Arctic Blast
