I no that elephant 🐘 has moved into my house I say if it’s not paying rent it can move out. It’s not working. You must live in the Midwest because we’re going to have that temperature tomorrow

You can keep it you really don’t have to share lol

You get what we get from our friends up North, Canada 🇨🇦 I do like when they send the breeze in the summertime but they sure can have it in the winter time.

It's about 17 here in Spokane, Wa. Do my legs hurt when it's cold?? Oh, yeah. The pain is incredible. Starts at my hips and goes all the way down my leg into my toes. When I get out of bed in the morning, I must stretch out my legs first. Then I sit up on side of bed to dangle my legs. Then I slowly stand up. If my legs are not holding me ,I just sit back down and wait a couple minutes, then stand again. All the time praying that I won't pee myself. Grab up my cane and sometimes walk all bent over in severe pain, or I can just walk slowly.

Each time the weather changes, snow , rain, extreme cold, my legs will hurt 3-4 days ahead of time. I'm getting pretty good at forecasting the weather !!

I know the feeling I should become a meteorologist. Too day it is going to be near below zero ad of course I have to go out the only good thing is that my 20 year old will be with me.

Try to stay warm

ssdw1958 When it's below freezing or feels that way, my legs quickly turn to leaden stumps. On the way to the mailbox, maybe about 600 feet from the porch, they work better than on the return. After I pick up the paper and the mail and start back up the hill, each leg seems to weigh a ton and it requires a great deal of energy to move. I am much slower. I am not sure if this is the MS or Raynauds which always affects my toes and fingers.

You gotta move that mailbox closer to the house or make a "zipline" packet to retrieve the mail. :-}

When it’s cold, my legs look like stilts without the legs. Eventually, my gait looks like Tim Conway’s old man shuffle. Charming.

I remember Tim Conway. His old man shuffle was funny. But I'm sure you are not funny. Cold weather is a bummer

I can't wait for it to warm up. I love Spring

I agree with you I want SPRING NOW I know that’s not going to happen but it does help me to yell about it LOL

I had a doctors appointment yesterday and we had an ice storm everything was covered in ice my husband was pushing me in my wheelchair down the ramp. So I had a plastic bag on my lap then on top of the rain I also had to lightly apply the breaks why is it when I have to go out there seems to be a storm. I am glad I didn’t have to drive.

Stay dry every one.

Hello, when it's really cold my legs get really stiff, the real cold is not good for me. GOOD LUCK IN THE FUTURE!

I just asked husband today that I wish someone would invent an electric blanket that you could wrap around your legs to keep them warm while in bed.
