Fleece blankies. There is no substitute.
Everybody in the family has their own fleece blanket. Even Tokyo has one. I just got a brand new one for Christmas. It's electric. Just like a blanket-sized heating pad. Oh yeah!!! (thank you Mami!)
I had to put sheets over the rosebushes. Here's hoping they make it through tonight's hard freeze, which I heard will extend south of Lake Okeechobee. Brrrrrrr. The temperature dropped 4 degrees on my way home from work, so I know it's going to be super cold. Grateful that I am fortunate enough to be out of the way of Mother Nature, and thinking of those who aren't.
