One thing I gotta say for such frigid temps outside...when a girl wants a Bloody Mary (like I did last weekend) and has no ice in the house, the miserable cold becomes her friend.
Just fill up a tray with water, stick outside your front door...
...and voila! Instant ice cubes, Chicago-style.
Now if I can only find a way to stay WARM, especially inside my house, well, I'd be a happy camper.
