A Taste of Siberia

Mornin'! It's 10° in Wildwood NJ (Siberia of the east coast).  It's sunny and windy (W-NW 27-37mph) with a wind chill of -5°!!!  It's crazy out there.  Ms Sun's up and glistening on all the snow both laying everywhere in huge drifts and in the frosty, sparkling, twirling, winds.  These incredible non-stop winds will not settle down and give us a break.  Last I heard, we were the winners for snow accumulation yesterday...17" on the white stuff.  What sucks is the drifts...much more than 17" in some spots.  This isn't just pushing the shovel to clear the's chop at the top of the drift layer by layer to get to the bottom layer so you can shovel.  I'm just happy to flooding, we have electric, heat, and Ms Sun's shining through the front windows of my entire home at the moment!  It'll be mostly sunny all day but she's got her work cut out for her as the temps won't get any warmer than 18° and along with those intense, relentless, howling winds (25-30mph +gusting)...I'm afraid the wind chill will be between 1° and -1° today down the shore.  Tonight...mostly clear, high of 13°, wind chill of -6°, winds out of the West 25-30mph.  Tomorrow...a repeat of today.  The Asian Noodle soup was delicious yesterday.  We enjoyed it for both lunch and dinner.  I kicked it up a notch by adding wasabi powder, lots of fresh ginger and a shot of hot pepper flakes.  Thankfully, that soup will be available for today and tomorrow!

I love wasabi! Puts american horseradish to shame.
When my sister asks me how it is here, you saved me some time. You eloquently covered all the bases!
