There are only two reason that I am thankful for freezing temperatures.
1. All the outside bugs are dead.
2. My freezer and refrigerator space is expanded.
Our temps are below freezing for at least four months out of the year. During this time I can take advantage of sales I wouldn't be able to the rest of the year because there isn't enough room in the freezer. For example, we just bought ten frozen Banquet dinners for $8.00. I do like these for times when one of us needs to eat at a different time from everyone else or to send to work with Dad. I can also buy milk when it is on sale because I can just leave it in the garage and bring it in as we need it.
