Brrrrrrr… Remind Me Again Why I Left California 10 Years Ago?

Published October 11, 2009 - 3 Comments

It’s that time of year again.  I turn the heat down at night because it seems a little stuffy, and I wake up freezing!  Doesn’t help that there’s not a stitch of insulation in the walls, and I move around so much that any chance of keeping a blanket on goes out the window… with all the heat…

That’s how I woke up this morning.  Cold.  Grumpy.  Cold.  Trying to find the will to live at 5am.  Cold.

To make matters worse, I knew that I had to deal with a flat tire before I went to work.  I noticed 2 days ago that I had a flat, pumped it up, and saw that it was flat again yesterday.  Oh goodie.  If I had’ve thought that it would have held the air, I would have pumped it up yesterday evening in the light.  But nope.  I didn’t have much faith of that, so I waited until this morning.  In the dark.  And the cold. 

I took two steps outside and realized that not only was this morning cold, but that everything was all nice and shiny.  Lovely.  Our first real heavy frost.  I had to run back into the house and start digging for a scraper and some gloves.  Found two gloves easily enough.  Both right-handed.  Fine.  I was going for warmth, not style.  And my choice of scrapers.  You can never have enough scrapers.

15 minutes later I was rolling down the road, heat blasting into my face, listening to my uplifting gym tunes, hoping to stay awake long enough to make it to work.

I hate winter.  It hasn’t even arrived yet, and I hate it already.
