Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey

We finally had a real taste of winter this weekend so I found something some what humorous to post about the weather. There is just something about curling up and doing nothing on a cold winter day. I think it makes the hot cocoa yummier and more satisfying. But not to worry by Wednesday the temps will be milder and the Spring bulbs will continue to poke up through the ground at least here in Atlanta.


  "Cold" is a relative term. Use the handy list below to overcome 
the confusion. Degrees (in Fahrenheit)
