Yesterday’s post about anticipating cold weather and how it’s been a mild winter in Vermont wasn’t taken as tongue in cheek by everyone as expected. Then again, people don’t always (if ever) get my sense of humor. It’s a little odd the things I find funny. Anyway, yesterday’s post was supposed to be a bit fun.
While today is Friday, I’m not looking forward to the weekend. It will be another lonely weekend. I do not plan on leaving my warm cozy apartment this weekend. I definitely don’t plan to walk to church Sunday morning in -12 degree temperatures. As I’m writing this the wind chill outside is -17 degrees and the actual temperature is a whopping 0. When this blog piece posts, it is supposed to be -3. I do have to go outside tomorrow, and honestly, I don’t mind. However, with the temperature predicted to be dangerously low with wind chills of (now they are predicting) -20 to -30, I think I’ll stay in. Maybe I will do some house cleaning or maybe I’ll just stay in my warm bed and read. Our friend Susan has given me a list of books to read, and I might as well get to reading them.
What are your plans for the weekend? Is this arctic blast supposed to reach you? When I told a friend of mine what the wind chill was last night, she happily said that it was 70 degrees where she was in Louisiana. Her other comment was “Holy shit, that’s cold.” I’d still rather be cold than hot, and besides, I like winter fashions over summer fashions.
PS Speaking of winter fashions, I have yet to buy the requisite Vermont flannel shirt that seems to be the uniform here. I’m just not a flannel kind of guy.
