Living in a Christmas Card
So, it’s been snowing here in Nova Scotia for nearly 3 weeks straight. It’s ridiculously cold – and not just to me, the girl who has her space heater on in the summer, but to everyone. It’s -18 (and -30 with the wind chill). And we’re under blizzard warning for tonight and tomorrow. Ugh. Effing Winter! And the worst news is that we still have 3-4 months left of this. *sad face*
And to make cold matters worse, the heating was broken in my office today and the AC stuck on. Picture this lady not happy. I wore my winter coat, scarf, hat and boots all day at work. Then, after 6 hours in, we left and I went and picked up some sushi and am chillin’ (literally) before my classes tonight. Thank goodness for my workouts this evening, I think it’s the only way I’ll heat up.
So yeah, back to the weather – snow, snow, major freezing rain/ice storm, snow, snow, more snow, more freezing rain…you getting the picture? Here, let me show you what it looked like Christmas morning:
It’s all very pretty, but damn it’s cold! And slick. And slippery. And did I mention cold??? Brr!! Allow me to reiterate: BRRRRRR!!!!
Thank goodness for Christmas gifts of fleecy PJs and fuzzy socks. And let me be the first to admit I AM NOT ABOVE wrapping my feet in plastic bags to ensure my socks don’t get wet in my boots. I will take whatever measures necessary to stay warm and dry and I am on the countdown to Spring and thawing out.
Wishing you all a warm start to the New Year.
