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.

    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.
