a cold day in hell.

a cold day in hell.

I’m not amused, Cupid.

I had to [yes, had to – completely necessary] adopt a Valentine gift from a very generous friend [you know who you are] because my husband is about as romantic and attentive as a neutered cat.

And then this morning happened.

It is -9°F, with wind chill, -28°F. [Yes, those are negative numbers.]

And this morning I was awakened by the voice of my daughter informing me that the POWER WAS OUT. My house was freezing. Not cold. Not chilly. Freezing. I could have left the milk on the counter with no unfortunate consequences.

I have had three cups of hot coffee. I’m going for four. Power was restored about an hour ago. I haven’t recovered yet.

I need some warming up.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I hope power comes back quickly. If not, maybe a romantic time by a roaring fireplace is on order. 😀

    • House is much warmer. Let’s not even discuss how much coffee I’ve had.

      It is so cold here that we received a broadcast phone call from the town we live in telling people to stay indoors and check on your friends and neighbors! Apparently, we have not had a day this cold here since 1957.
