Did you have cabin fever during the onslaught of cold weather and snow recently, and if so, how did combat it?

“We hosted two Chinese foreign exchange students on their way to KU.  One of them had never seen snow before. I generally stayed in and worked on new designs for this year's wood carvings. I made it out for coffee with the guys at B&J's most mornings. Denise and I watched more TV than we normally do. I guess I just tried to get caught up on things that I had to put off last fall.”

“Cabin fever is one sickness I never suffer from. I embraced the snow that gifted me with an extra week of Christmas vacation. I had no problems with two weeks of sledding and sleeping. I'm afraid this might throw me on a few hit lists ... but I have loved this snow.”

"Yes, I certainly did have cabin fever, as did the rest of my family. I tried to do one thing each day from my list entitled "Things I don't want to do but have to eventually" so now I feel much better and have some "grungy" tasks wiped off the list. Each day, I also tried to call someone who I don't talk with often. I also thought about sending some persons responsible for driving our gravel road to Minnesota for "snow training." Seriously, the road keepers did a great job with limited equipment and they were backed up by some great people with a 4-wheel drive pickup and a blade on the front. Thanks to all of you. I am very grateful the snow has finally stopped — knock on wood — and the temperature is returning to normal. Please no letters to Santa asking for snow on Valentine's Day. I think he lost track of the number of requests he got for a "white Christmas" and ordered far more than we could handle.
