It's a Winter Friday Five
Singing Owl at RevGalBlogPals says:I am so sorry for the lateness of the Friday Five. I've had two emergencies this a.m. and now my computer keeps crashing. I hope I can get this posted!

Brrrr! Baby, it’s COLD outside! At least that is the case where I am this morning. We are in a January deep freeze. Have a cup of hot tea and tackle five easy seasonal questions.
1. What is the thermometer reading at your house this morning?
It was very cold, in the 20's or teens. It is 28 now at 3:45pm. Far tooooo cold!
2. Snow—love it or hate it?
I hate it. It looks pretty for a few hours, but then it is dirty looking. It is miserable to drive in. It has to be shoveled, Yuck!
3. What is winter like where you are?
Cold and miserable right now. We have leftover snow and ice everywhere. Where is Spring?
4. Do you like winter sports? Any good stories?
I am not a winter person! I am also am not much of a Sports person. I do kind of like to watch an occasional Hockey game. I have never ice scatted or played Hockey. I don't ski. I stay inside and try to keep warm! I grew up in Claifornia and never really adjusted to New England Winters.
5. What is your favorite season, and why?
I really like Spring. It is not too hot and not too cold. There is new growth and the flowers and leaves are beautiful. My second favorite is Fall. New England Fall weather and foliage is wonderful.
Bonus: Share a favorite winter pick-me-up. A recipe, an activity, or whatever.
I kind of like the January thaw, when it happens. I also like a good wood fire in a fireplace along with a glass of wine.
