Oh, Mother Nature. Have mercy on us. Please.
It’s our third full day of living in the arctic tundra. It is so cold, I don’t even know how to describe how it feels to be outside in it. Let’s take a look at the current numbers, shall we?
Um, yeah. “Feels like” -14 degrees. I’ll tell you one thing: I believe it. When I walked from the parking lot into my office this morning, I pretty much wanted to cry. It was just that cold. Adding to the misery is the fact that we’re experiencing 20-30 mph winds, with wind chills reaching down around -20 degrees.
If you’ve never experienced cold like this, I can tell you right now–YOU DON’T WANT TO. It is cruel, it is bitter, it is frigid. You can’t take deep breaths. The smallest gusts of wind take your breath away. Larger gusts of wind? Suffocating. It’s just miserable. Completely and utterly wretched.
I can’t wait to get home again tonight. Bundle up in some pajamas and slippers, and bake! Then curl up with the space heater, a blanket, and a cuddly little dog. And hibernate until this cold snap is over. I’m not asking for much; just hitting 20-30 degrees would be a huge relief.
There is just one thing left to say: Brrrrrrrrrrrr!
AboutI'm Heather. I just turned 30. I'm happily married, and mommy to the most beautiful little girl in the world (what, you're saying I could be biased?). Determined DIYer and homeowner. Sarcastic. A perfectionist. A bleeding-heart liberal. Frugal. Loves a little dog way more than many humans. Loves food, hates exercise (it's an ongoing battle). A loyal football fan. I love to laugh. Value family and friends above all else. Vie to be a world traveler.
