Yay the Polar Vortex is gone!

 Hooray the sun is out!
I thought I'd pop in and see how everyone is doing.  We survived last week's "arctic vortex" without any real problems. Goodness it sure got cold!  We were waking up to -5 with a windchill of -25 for a week.  I tell you there was a chill in the house even though the furnace was running.  In the evenings we had the fireplace going to cozy up the living room.
All I can say is I'm glad it's passed.
Last week during the deep freeze my Christmas Cactus was loaded with buds but they wouldn't open.  As soon as that deep chill broke they started to bloom.  It's nice to see some color with all that white background we have!

Sure looks different in the winter around here!!
We've had a total of 89" of snow so far this winter.  It melted down a bit in December and then round two came.  The snow is pretty much knee high in the yard.  Today the sun is out and a welcome sight!  It's been way too gray for too long!
I hope you all survived that deep freeze without any big problems.
