It really says something about the lovely, just lovely weather you’ve been having when your thermometer is now all the way up to 22 degrees, so you aren’t wearing a coat when you go outside, or running your heater in your truck on the way to work in the morning.
And that something really isn’t very nice.
It is winter.
Days turn to weeks of snow, smog, and cold.
Sub-zero days give way to sudden rain,
the snow turns to mud.
Would you go and fish the dog out of the yard?
(apologies to Red Green)
According to the weather service, it’s a good 20 degrees warmer in Fairbanks, Alaska, than it is here in Happy Valley, Colorado.
Negative nine this morning, or so the weather service says. A might nippy, you could say. The cat’s water was frozen even though it was on it’s new, fancier, much warmer, heating pad that I bought last week since this seems to be par for the course this winter.
Sorry if it seems that all I talk about lately is the weather–but when the temperatures keep doing things like that it sort of dominates your mind…
Well, time to get ready to go to work and sit in an unheated building all day long…
You know something’s wrong when you are driving to work in the morning and your truck thermometer says “13 degrees” and you think to your self–”Whoa, that’s pretty warm!”
Supposed to get up to 40 today! And then it’s supposed to be blowing snow tomorrow, and back into the negatives…
Algor, save me now!
