Complaining about the weather already… it’s going to be a LONG winter
October 21, 2006
I now know what it would be like to be sucked up an Oreck Windtunnel.
Holy crap but it was windy at my house yesterday. All the leaves got whipped off of the trees, the recycling got blown away, probably into the neighbors yards. I was hoping that the leaves that were in our yard would be magically blown into the neighbors yard, leaving ours free of leaves. Instead I think we gathered all the leaves town wide into our yard.
Tree limbs fell down all over the place. Our cell phones still aren’t working because a couple of towers blew down or something.
And cold? It was so damn cold. Our central heat kicked on for the first time this season when the house temperature dropped to 56 degrees. Once I realized it was that cold in the house and not my imagination that my fingers and toes were numb, I cranked that thermostat up to 58. 58, the new comfortable. (In case anyone is wondering, my children don’t seem to feel the cold and are in fact runing around in the house barefoot and wearing shorts, while I am swaddled in layers and wearing shoes. IN THE HOUSE! yes, the flylady would be so pleased.)
But worse yet. The internet was down. So I sat down on my couch and turned on the television, but the cable was out also.
Rob arrived home last night at 10:00 pm to find me sitting on the couch staring at the snow on the television. I am not sure what is more pathetic, that I was doing that… or that I am writing about it.
