To our readers in Miami:

Just thought you might like to see this.

Sometimes I honestly wonder why my ancestors decided to settle in the Midwest.

Anyhow our truck is currently not operable and has been out of commission since Wednesday (we've had some bad luck this winter, seriously), so I faced the daunting task of walking the 3/4 mile distance to the bus stop and then waiting 5-20 minutes (depending on how I time it so I don't miss mine). You know I like to cheekily brag about how tough I am (see here, mid page), but I chickened out on this one. I decided I am not interested in exploring the world of frostbite. Not today. So thank you so much to Laura, my friend who is on her way right now (coming out of her way, in fact) to pick me up. I truly sincerely appreciate it. One of my favorite quotations states, "Kindness is never wasted." Just know that your generosity is not lost on me.

We need to do a house swap, don't we? We could use some sledding 'round here...

Honestly? I really have no idea why I still live here. I mean, I do, technically (because our families are here). But really? REALLY? I HATE the cold. Hate hate hate it. I'm such a wuss. So glad you have a friend coming to get you. It's way too cold for waiting at bus stops.

I think a lot of people chose to stay in today. I made it to work in record time and was so surprised how empty the roads were during typical 'rush hour' that I had to quickly look up my district's website to make sure we actually had school!

I heard some one point out that our refrigerators are 60 degrees warmer than the outside air. A frige would feel pretty nice about now!

Negative Temps. aren't cool. I grew up in Massachusetts and remember those, along with the wind chills. Yikes!

If it makes you feel any better [which im sure it won't because you still have the negative temps]... I live in Florida and the lows have been in the teens and the past couple days the highs have only been in the low 40's... Granted I bet that seems like 'Summer' compared to yours, but for Florida it's really cold.
