Not Quite as Cold Today, in Michigan

Our thermometer this afternoon is registered at 10 degrees F. This is a far cry from five below zero, which was our wind chill factor, two days ago! It's considered a small amount of heat, to those who live here, in the mitten of Lower Michigan. Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the least bit, complaining! Living in Michigan for over sixty-six years, this is normal weather for the dead of winter. We just have to be prepared by dressing very warm, for all these dips we go through with our temperature. And I'd never want to live anywhere else, this is where I was born and raised! It's considered my home

We had the same temp as you yesterday. Today is another story as I woke to -4 with -25 wind chill. The reason is obvious - no clouds.

We were blessed with a heavy cloud covering, to hold in what little heat we have.

@kobesbuddy We had a good cloud cover yesterday too. Sure wish we still had it. The sun is bright in a clear blue sky.

I'm quite happy to stay here, in Michigan. Other places are nice to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there:(

@kobesbuddy I would if it was warm, I'm not made for the cold and hate the staying inside for months.

Even my city (Genova), is where I am born and raised. But if I could, to have a decent future, I should leave Italy. It's not a good country, not even for retirees

No country at this time, is good for retirees. Economical difficulty is in every nation, not just Italy.

@kobesbuddy Yes, I can imagine this. However there are many people, especially retirees who leave Italy, to go to live in Countries, where their pension worth something more. A friend of mine, for example, lives in Brazil for the past 10 years. (Since 2007)

I've moved around a bit in the past 30 years. North Carolina is a perfect fit for us. Not to hot for Canadian me and not too cold for my Alabamian husband.

I'm glad it's warming up a little, of course for me that would be freezing and I would be under the covers hibernating Kobe doesn't like that you're on the other side of the fence.

Yes, it's pretty cold up here in Michigan! When I'm inside the fence, it's impossible to get a good photo of Kobe. He jumps up, grabs, runs in circles, and never sits still! LOL

Surely it's where you are most comfortable to be in despite the weather. I can't imagine getting old in another country though I hope to travel everywhere.

We have adjusted to this colder climate, just like others have adjusted to the intense heat.
