It's Freakin' Cold
Tuesday, 2005 January 18 - 11:05 pm
I usually like cold weather. I'm from Michigan, so I know cold. But today was FREEZING.

It was literally freezing today. And I mean "literally" literally. (Pet peeve: people who say "literally" just for emphasis, as in "I literally lost my head today.") We barely made it into the 20s. And I know, somewhere in Minnesota it was 45 below or something, so no need to write in, one-upping me with your stories of coldness. Below freezing is still cold.

There's an assumption that Northerners have thicker blood than Southerners, and can stand cold weather better. Well, that's true up to a point, but when things are cold enough, even the red states become "blue" states. I think the main thing is, Northerners have warmer clothes. Since moving here, I have gotten rid of most of my sweaters, hats, wool socks, and thermal underwear. Just about everything I have is made of "cool, comfortable" cotton.

I do have an old down-filled winter jacket, and that's really quite warm. It's gotten pretty ratty looking over the years. But if the weather keeps up like this, I'm just not going to worry about the fashion faux-pas. Oh, I also have an overcoat with a liner, and that's pretty warm. But that makes me look like a flasher, so it's not a big improvement.

Alright. 20 is cold for Norf Kakalakee.
And I guess 9 is cold for New York. But 62 is cold indoors anywhere.

My super just bled the radiators again, and it's now 64. Still unaccaptable - for me and the New York City Ordinance.

We'll try again tomorrow.
