While I usually say nothing about the weather in my blogs (boooring), I must say my residence avoided the worst of the blizzard that hit Indiana yesterday (the 26th). I have no idea how much snow I got, because it drifted, leaving bare ground next to two foot high snow banks. I'm guessing 6-7 inches. Of my 150' driveway, I only have to shovel out about 20'.

I'm not going anywhere, anyhow. Not even for a walk/jog. I'm an exercise nut, nearly obsessive, but I hate the cold, let alone the snow and ice. So, I exercise in my basement.

I can walk in circles, four laps per minute. I get in 5 to 7 miles a day. I also have a punching bag for cardio boxing, 30' worth in 5 or 6 minute "rounds". Lifting weights is included in my routine, alternating with the walking and boxing. It takes about 2 hours late morning (after computer time) to conclude my activities.
Not only do I stay warm, I can listen to jazz or classical music while I'm exercising. Believe it or not, it's actually fun! Call me crazy.

You might learn to tolerate the snow and cold if you exercise outside. Walking or snowshoeing through crisp, cold air is enchanting.

Good for you, keeping in shape!  

I'm not a fan of snow either.  We get a little here in Portland area, not a lot.  Rare winters, none.  There is an almost-annual ice storm, making the streets into ice rinks.  Which in hilly areas makes for entertaining TV news videos.
