Is it cold enough for ya?

We have had -20 wind chill days the last 2-3 days. Ice is forming on the inside of my kids' bedroom windows. I get frost in my goatee just from walking outside. My car keeps refusing to start in protest of this miserable weather. A local school cancelled school because of the extreme cold. (my kids were just upset that it wasn't their school)

In fact it's so cold that our eye doctor's are giving away ice scrapers with every new pair of eyeglasses, and Starbucks is serving their coffee on a stick, and I chipped my tooth on my soup, and...

Okay those last three are just jokes, but it has been super cold here lately. I'm ready to move to Florida. Oh wait, they have a winter blast going on too. Maybe Arizona. Anyone with me?

yeah it's not much warmer down here in SOUTH Carolina. (the 'south' part led me to believe it would be much warmer here!)

hand was forced this week, I had to run three days in a row on the treadmill. It's painful enough going from the card to the gym door! Stay warm!

Too funny! I actually just blogged all the 'isms of my cold long run yesterday. I do remember my last winter at K-State when the public schools and MCC closed classes for the day but K-State did not with 30-40 below wind chills-I was walking to class with a scarf wrapped entirely around my head with the eyes peeking out! So, I won't complain here knowing how humid it is there compared to what I'm dealing with.

Umm...yes. After trying to do a long run today and having to stop and walk over the ice-covered spots, I'm tired of this.

Today while driving around in Phoenix, AZ I saw too females in shorts and tank tops with car wash signs. Later this afternoon I'll go for a run in a short sleeve shirt, although I may have tights on because it could be nippy out.

Well, it's not quite that cold in FL but it's pretty darn miserable since many houses don't have much insulation, no fireplaces, limited heating, etc. Hawaii is where I want to be.

Best wishes to you in 2010!
