It’s a wee bit nipply out there boys and girls. Well more than nipply.
We went from way above zero to way below zero in NO time. I awake this morning to -50 with the windchill. WTF. Now that is cold.
I let my car run for 20 minutes before driving it away and even then it wasn’t too warm. But then I realize I’m not I dying of the cold. I focus for a minute and realize it’s not as cold as I thought it was going to be.
I could still breathe.
My limbs weren’t feeling like they were going to fall off.
I didn’t even have my scarf wrapped around my neck.
What the heck.
I then come to the quick conclusion that I like this dry, bitter cold a whole lot better than that moist, cut through your skins & bones cold that is back East.
There is no real point to this post, except to let you all know that you no longer need to be jealous of me and my beautiful weather. It’s not so beautiful out here now. Well, I will admit it looks pretty nice since there is snow everywhere and it looks pretty promising that it’ll stay here for the holidays. But I could do without the frigid-ness that is upon us for 7 or so days.
After realizing this and hauling my ass into work this morning, I get about an hour into my shift when I need to go home. I’m sick. I knew I didn’t feel well when I got up but I thought it would go away. Plus, I didn’t want it to look like I was calling in because of the cold. I wanted to get the day in. But it wasn’t in the cards.
