How Cold Is It?

     I got hone from Flurida yesterday. I woke up this mirning, and teh sun was streaming in the window. I crawled out of bid and wemt downstairs to the ki0then. I knew I wqs back up no-rth, so the furst thing I dud was check our thermometer.

     Wwe habe a digitral thermometet in our kitchrn. So I lookd over and was surprised -- i0t read 65 degrees. Not bad!

     Them I loked again. No . . .  not 65 dedrees. It was 6.5 degrees! Argghh!

     If you wundor what's rong wit this posting, its becaser the keys on my keyboard ar tottally frosen up and they;'re sticking.

     Thhat's one way to know that's it's really cold here. Another way -- the storm windo not only has condensation on it. But the condensation is froxen.

     Another way you know -- the leaves on the rhododendron are all curled up, huddlefg against the colsd. Just like I am!

It was chilly in Florida this morning, but I am not going to complain. I did not have to scrape frost of the windshield before heading out.

Just in case you were wondering, it was 32 degrees this morning when I woke up. And, while my keyboard did not freeze (I had the heater on), we were in the midst of a freeze warning. You got out just in time!

Thanks for the explanation for the typing. I was getting worried about you. But that sure is cold. Keep warm and take care.

Everything is f.f.f.f.rozen around here, too.

It was 28 degrees when I headed out the door to go hiking, and the dense fog made it seem even colder. My keys aren't sticking quite yet. Had fun with that one, didn't you, Tom? :-)

It's very cold in Toronto -- with a windchill, we are struggling with -25 degrees Celsius! It's been like this for days with little hope for warmer weather in the near future. Be thankful that you had an escape to Florida!

I like cold weather - probably because I've never lived where it gets reqlly cold.

However, when I woke up in Tucson it was 40 outside.By midafternoon it was in the 70s.

I was worried you had left your spellchecker in Florida. Thank goodness it is just the cold!Clever, Tom.

BTW, we will be close to 80 early next week. Come on down!

It was 6 degrees F, yesterday morning, and 9 degrees F, this morning. (I'm in south central KS.) Since today is so much warmer, everyone will be out in shorts and halters.

I feel for the folks up in New England - especially with the LP shortage having driven prices sky high on their heating fuel.
