It's Hard To Type While Wearing Gloves

I don't know what's different this winter. Is it really that much colder than it has been the previous 11 years in Southern California or has my blood finally finished thinning out? I even broke down and turned the heat on last night, but still had to sleep in, and am currently wearing, gloves. My house is very old and drafty, but this is ridiculous. What would I do if I lived in Oklahoma or Seattle? More importantly, what am I going to do when I get to Utah in a little over a week? I've done okay the past two years, but am a little concerned about tolerating the cold this time. Wish me luck.

On the sunny side, while tomorrow is a "holiday" for many people, I will be enjoying the lighter traffic on my drive to work for the first day of my last week before vacation. In spite of not traveling somewhere warm and tropical, I am completely looking forward to my two weeks off. We'll be making our annual trip to the second week of the Sundance Film Festival. I had such a good time the past couple of years, so I'm really looking forward to it. Except for the cold air and snow thing. I will also have some days before and after the trip at home, which will be very nice.

I have had a good weekend. I've done a lot of sleeping, reading, and seeing some good friends I haven't seen for a long time. I plan to cap it all off with the season premiere of 24. Well, once E gets home in a couple of hours. Meanwhile, I think I'll go crawl under the covers for a while.

This weather is so strange! Heat wave one day, freeeeezing the next!

Traffic will probably be better in the morning, but I'm not looking forward to driving home after work, battling the 3-day weekend traffic home.

Cold? You'll love it! Frosty noses, rosy cheeks, breath hanging in the air... what's not to like? :)

What's not to like about the cold? Impaired motor skills, loss of circulation, not being able to drive out of your neighborhood because of 3 inches of ice on the ground...yeah, woohoo! Fun! I am SO moving back to the West Coast.

It's been so cold up here, too. We're lucky if it gets above 50 during the days. It's been in th 20's at night. At least it's been sunny.

If you lived in OK or WA, you'd probably have insulated the house by now. ;-)

Of course, the first action item depends on local conditions; if you are in LA and are serious about your ecosystem impact, you'd have a solar DHW heater.
