It’s Frickin Freezing Out There

So… is anyone missing the mid-summer heat? As you’ve probably noticed, it’s a bit on the chilly side out there. It was 21 degrees at 7am at my house. That’s cold for this area. Has the cold had an impact on your daily life yet? I noticed a couple of my neighbors out scraping their cars this morning. For me, I noticed it the most when I had to go out behind my house at 1:30am a couple days ago to stop a pipe from rattling in a conduit against my house.

As I typed this, I see that Westside MAX service is disrupted due to a power outage in Hillsboro. Cold-related? Wouldn’t surprise me…

How many of you actually enjoy mornings in the 20s? Does it bring back pleasant memories of your Minnesota upbringing, or are you like me and find it a bit colder than you’d prefer?

    I’ll admit – I’m one of those who just love it! While getting dressed I decided it was finally chilly enough to wear a more “wintery outfit” but I still didn’t wear a coat…it’s not REALLY cold yet. ;-)

    Murphy’s Law: Our furnace stopped working overnight last night. Great timing!

    Though I have to admit I love that chill in the air – outside.

    Yeah, well I just moved to New York. How do you think *I* feel as the winter weather sets in?
