Spoke too soon

It's been so dark all day, and so damp, with a nasty bleak wind blowing, that I can't help but feel that it's my fault.... sorry, folks.

But for real weather, and the impact on people, see Laurie's Three Dog Blog. And Shelagh writes to me from Toronto talking about 15-minute limits for exposed areas of the body before frostbite gets you. Maybe dark and damp isn't so bad.

Yet, yet...somehow I still feel slightly envious of all that snow - too much Calvin & Hobbes and those wonderful snowmen, I suspect.

i refused to walk the dogs today until the temperature rose from eighteen below fahrenheit. we finally went out when it was two below, and it was actually quite gorgeous. the sky was blue and sunny, the snow was so dry it squeaked, and we were well bundled up.

but now it's 5 p.m. and i'm thinking, dang, we have to go out AGAIN... and we are so warm and cozy inside, with electric heaters and tea.

perhaps the dishwasher will work again. (the lines have been frozen.)
