Baby It’s Cold Out There

Yes my little friends, it’s colder than a well diggers backside out there. I am NOT a cold weather person, and yet I live right smack dab in the middle of the country and when it gets cold, it gets horribly cold. Last night it got down to -27*. And the high today? 9*F. Brrrrrr.

I’m a firm believer that the temperature should be at least as high as I am old…48. That being said, I’m not a fan of extreme heat, but warm is always better than cold. And I don’t understand how people can live in areas that are cold throughout most of the year. Boggles my mind.

So why don’t I move to a warmer climate? Well other than the fact that I can’t afford it and all my roots lie here, some of the warmer climates come with issues of their own. California has Earthquakes, no thanks. The South-East has hurricanes. Umm, no. A nice island in the Mediterrainian? Sorry, allergic to volcanos.

So I guess I’ll just continue to live where I am, deal with jacked-up winters, and a few blistering summers. We do have to deal with tornadoes from time to time, but at least you can see them coming…usually. So you’ll have to excuse me now. I have to go pile on a few more layers to get warm. They say there’s only 6 more Mondays until Spring. I’ve never been so happy to see a Monday show up in my life. 🙂
