- "Time for the weather report. It's cold out folks. Bonecrushing cold. The kind of cold which will wrench the spirit out of a young man, or forge it into steel."
I promised I would always report in the truth. The truth as I saw it (or felt it!), but the truth nonetheless.
It will be interesting to see how this winter season plays out as, not even mid-December, I have already seen more snow than I encountered the entire year last year. It has been below 20 degrees, some days even hitting the negative numbers (YIKES!!) for the past week. Holy smokes.
It has been COLD here lately, friends. C. O. L. D. !!! Since I am a wuss and was promised Boulder winters were not that brutal, I've maintained that my blog would be a refuge for the truth about this. Last year really wasn't that bad, but so far this year has been a little more of a challenge.
Billy seems to feel differently. "No Sharpie, remember last year, it was like this! It was COLD for a short stint and then it was fine."
Maybe he is right. I do remember and have always maintained that it is kind of cold for a couple weeks, but then it's not so bad. And if memory serves, it was around this time last year, too. So.... perhaps we are getting our cold weather out of the way now?
It is also worthy of mention that the dry cold IS a different cold. Leanne picked me up for dinner the other night and it was 12 degrees. TWELVE DEGREES. I am the first to agree, it was cold, but it didn't feel like what 12 degrees to me would feel like. It felt closer to what I know 40 degrees to be in Atlanta, or on the east coast. So, using that as the measure, it really isn't THAT much worse.... the test this winter will be the amount of snow, and the longevity of "days like 40".
