It Is Time.......
Another tree was taken down yesterday at our house. The partridge in the Christmas tree has an expression on his face. Maybe it is startled that I waited for so long or he is concerned about his safety in the storage box.
Yesterday the wind made us live in dangerous weather for sure. I was trying to fill the car with gasoline and the winds made the windchill unbearable. The windchill was -35 degrees F. I don't think I have every felt like I could have been overcome by cold until yesterday afternoon. I know if I was on the ground I would have been warmer because I would have been out of the wind. I did get myself back into the car while the gas was pumping itself. I was very covered and layered with clothes and it really didn't help. Having frozen bluejeans is an unbelievable feeling. The guy filling his van next to me taught me a bunch of filthy words to use while standing in the cold. He was yelling at the top of his lungs. Maybe that helped but I doubt it.
We will warm up to 10 degrees F. That will be our high temp sometime today. We are always colder up here north of Des Moines. We are staying warm enough even though our old furnace doesn't meet the needs completely. We will be glad when and if it warms up in a few days. Thank you for checking in on my blog today.
