It has been a little frigid in these parts lately. At first I don't notice the intense cold when I go outside, probably because I've already started to overheat in the elevator with my many layers of fleece. But once inside the car, the cold seeps through the layers from the leather seat and the steering wheel, and the icy blast of air envelopes your body while waiting for the hot air to come through the vents.
I become obsessed with the outside temperature gauge. I glance at it probably more often than at the clock or the rearview mirrors. Good thing it doesn't report the windchill.
What the ... -17? it was only -15 a minute ago.
I finally hit on the perfect solution to mess with my head.
I changed the setting to fahrenheit.
Immediately got rid of that nasty minus sign.
Didn't get rid of the -29 windchill, but 3 felt so much warmer than -15.
and I have no idea really, what fahrenheit means anymore
Last night, when I got into the car, I forgot that I had changed it and immediately thought I'd be overdressed for 6 and wondered what happened to the -29 windchill.
But then I saw the little F .
And remembered that it is always warmer in the parking lot, nestled under the trees.
And watched the temperature decrease to 0.
