Southern Wisconsin, the Frozen Tundra

It is officially freezing. As I sit watching the Bears get spanked (**sniffling** ) in the Superbowl, I am also watching a running banner of school closings for tomorrow and there are already lots of them, all because of the wind chill advisory. Without the wind chill factor the current temp is a balmy -2 degrees. BRRRR!
I spent the first half of the game in the trainer tonight, then another 30 on the elliptical, so igot a lot of cardio time in tonight, hopefully enough to counteract the "Schlop" Mike made for the football game. Schlop officially is a warm gooey mixture Velveeta, chili, and ground beef eaten with tortilla chips. Yummy, fatty, sloppy good football food.
The most exciting part of my weekend was ordering my new hardtail mountain bike. It's not pink, but it sure is pretty. I can't wait to get off road this spring! I also bought myself a new gel seat for the road bike, which is awesome - I almost don't need the padded shorts......almost. Thank you Uncle Sam for sending my taxes back to me to spend on something fun!

I guess we cheeseheads are just hardy folk. I wasn't even regularly wearing a jacket until a week or so ago.......I think its a WI thing.
