Coldest day this winter


The title says it all, so I spent the day at home watching what was going on in many parts of the country.

It looks like Minnesota winter has reached Portugal! What a shock! Why didn't you go outside and build a snowman?!

Olivier said...

on a l'impression de voir les mêmes actualités en France ;)

willow said...

Lots of snow here in Ohio, too. We have about 9 inches on the ground right now. Stay safe and warm, my friend.

Peter said...

Did you even have some snow on the coastline, in Oieras? Brrr!

JM said...

Leif and Peter, it's snowing in the north and east, not here. Temperatures in this area still are above 0ºC...

brattcat said...

Oh, you be very careful, JM!

joo said...

Looks familiar! Not the typical weather for your country I guess.
Stay warm and have a nice week despite the conditions:)

Joanne said...

Bem! isto faz me lembrar outra situação:)) Muito boa ideia...

Anya said...

Its here also :(
I could today NOT drive my car :(
Snow storms and that in The Netherlands
LOL
Its almost Russia here :-)
(Global warming WHERE !!!!... LOL)

Jarart said...

Good idea! That's what I do when the weather gets like that here, stay inside.

studioJudith said...

Staying home was an excellent choice!
Here in New Mexico, we're VERY cold (10F)and a bit of snow on the ground.
I just run outside to grab some firewood and
retreat to the house.... .

Jjj

Paula said...

Oh, JM! I hope you're safe and sound and stay bundled up and toasty.

WOW!!!
:-(

Dina said...

The people who can stay home and sit it out until the worst is over are lucky.
The pictures are scary. I had to drive on snow and ice several years in Chicago and HATED it.
Wishing you all a thaw soon.

So you didn't escape Daisy? ;-)

Gunn White said...

Yes, do something nice, and enjoy life at home!
it is still cold where I am, but not as cold as it was a few days back.
Anyway, I still think all the info. about global warming must have lost a chapter or two....
I bought my self an "orkide" this month. Your air plant is unique! i looked it up via google... I have never heard about it before.

Rob and Mandy said...

No snow in Barcelona, but 30 to 50 cm less than 30 minutes driving from here. It even snows in Sevilla!

Babzy said...

Snow everywhere ! be carreful !

Cezar and Léia said...

wow será que nevar em Portugal desse jeito é coisa de louco mesmo! Que inverno rigoroso!
Aproveita um cappucino, vinho do porto o que vier okay!
Abraços
Léia

*** a proposito, uma pena que aqui em Luxembourg nào foi permitido fotos!Eu não consegui nenhuma! :( sorry!
Na Grécia, conseguimos tirar fotos no Museu Nacional, mas é logico sem flash!

Trillian said...

Maybe we should all learn to ski well?

Rambling Round said...

Looks like staying home was the best thing to do!

VP said...

A very good day to stay at home!

Jacob said...

These are not pictures of your area, right? But maybe close by? I thought you were sub-tropical...

If I saw that on TV I'd stay inside, too.

Bob Crowe said...

This is simply beyond belief. Snow in Portugal. It must be that the apocalypse is at hand.

Per Stromsjo said...

A perfect day for not being out on the roads over here and - I'm sure - at your place. Take care.

Wolynski said...

Very funny. Well, you photograph what you see. Quite sensible to stay indoors. Very unfortunate timing of that Copenhagen global warming summit, eh? Everyone is having the worst winter in history.

Joan Elizabeth said...

What fun ... if you can stay inside and watch from a distance.

Mirela said...

As far as I can read Portuguese, that part of PT hasn't had similar snow storm in the past 15 years? Did you go out to make a snowman? :)

Small City Scenes said...

And all I can say is BRRRRR!!! MB

Lois said...

Probably a wise idea to stay at home away from that mess! It has been very cold here too, but no snow.

Tricia said...

Isn't that unusual for it to snow in Portugal? You guys don't get snow there, do you?

Tinsie said...

Looks like Portugal's experiencing the same weather as the UK. If it wasn't for the Portuguese titles, these could be screenshots off BBC News.
