it is so cold up here the lift span of the draw bridge is stuck open. Frozen in place.  the ski resorts are closed.  It hit 84 below with the wind chill on one mtn today. Can't even take the baby out for a walk in it. Too risky.  And she is a " Mainer"  Ready to head south for a warm up. Fontana even made our local news up here tonight.  Crazy. Keep posting pics, pls. Makes me homesick.
