I can't believe how cold it is today. When I checked the weather this morning just before 9a.m., it was -16 degrees and with the windchill it was -37. Brrrr! They even cancelled school because of the extreme temperatures. Temperatures Des Moines hasn't seen in 12 years. One of our local news stations, KCCI, did a story on the frigid weather. My poor husband had to go to work, but the kids and I stayed indoors to keep warm. My kids have been wishing it was warm enough to go to the beach today, lol. I wish it was, too. My youngest daughter collects sea shells, sand dollars, etc., and wanted me to take a picture of the newest addition to her collection. I played around with my macro lens and took this photo of the front of her sand dollar.
This is definately the closest we will get to a beach today, lol. Have a great day and stay warm.
