50 Degrees Below Zero! Are you Kidding Me?
Art called up to me this morning to say I needed to see the outdoor thermometer from the window. It read 17 degrees below zero. It's 6:00 PM now as I write this and I just heard Brian Williams say we registered 50 degrees below zero when you factored in the windchill.
I went to our monthly luncheon of retired lady friends in our little village and they all laughed when they saw me. They jokingly razzed me about the timing of our visit. It was lovely seeing everybody. Our schedule is filling up quickly and suddenly we don't have enough time to see everybody and do all the things we were thinking of doing. Well, it did take us a few days to get over the jet lag and another few days to see KC through her nasty cold. Now we've only got three weeks left! Good gosh!
Tomorrow Art gets to see his E.P.A. buddies and Sunday we'll be attending a party being thrown by my teacher friends. On Tuesday, everything will stop so we can celebrate the inauguration! Woohoo! I hope President Obama can stay warm somehow.
