Surviving the Polar Vortex




Well, we are officially in our third Polar Vortex of the winter.  Click here for full definition.  We definitely feel like we are in a deep freeze.  Schools have been closed more than I can ever remember and even colleges and universities closed today due to the dangerously cold temps and wind chills.  I believe right now we are at -8 with windchill readings of -30.  I am so thankful for a warm roof over our heads.  My heart just aches for the those without out heat, mainly all the homeless out there.  No one could survive in this it's just horrible.

Today we will be going forward with our schoolwork.  The girls will be learning more about the Polar Vortex today.  I am digging up kid-friendly resources on the subject.  I came a cross a well written article on Time for Kids. It explains what the Polar Vortex is with dangers and tips.

Since we feel like we have been stuck indoors for days, the potential of going stir crazy has become reality, but we are making good out of it all.  I'd rather have warm and healthy children stuck inside a small space. {Mommy has felt like she could pull her hair out ;)} We are learning to be content.  It's a good feeling.  The girls are appreciating their toys more, their creativity is blossoming, and we are enjoying hot chocolate and extra bonding time.   Since the girls can't get much exercise, we have been doing kids fitness workouts.  We have one DVD and the rest you can find on YouTube for free.  It's fun.  Got to keep the kids active through this Polar Vortex, definitely important.

We are looking forward to the warm sun and warmer temps.  The Polar Vortex and cold weather shall pass!
