Brutal cold has arrived. Woke to temps just around 0F--some areas slightly below and some very slightly above. I have rarely seen winds as strong as we had yesterday. I had to bring the bird feeder inside so it wouldn't get blown off the shelf it was on in the frame of the mini-greenhouse. We still have some lake-effect snow falling here.
According to the news this morning we have a new housing trend blighting the landscape: giga mansions. I won't link to the stories I found on a quick Google search. The story cited houses with 70k-90k sq ft. Some billionaires are buying mega mansions just to tear them down to build the larger giga mansion. Oh well, I guess if you have it, you feel the need to flaunt it. I simply call it more money that brains.
