My neck of the woods is currently seeing record lows on the thermometer. In fact, it’s been so cold that we had a school cancellation yesterday and a delay today just for the cold temperatures. They keep saying threatening words on the news like, “Don’t go outside with any skin exposed to the elements, or you will surely get frostbite in a matter of seconds.” I have to wonder what would posses someone to want to expose any skin to those temperatures and winds, but what do I know?
In all the weather reports, though, they keep repeating that the last time we saw weather this cold was eight years ago. That is, interestingly/ironically enough, the exact number of years I spent living outside of the frigid Midwest.
