It has been bitterly cold out these last couple of days. Not mid-west type of freezing cold, but still, uncomfortably cold. With windchill. And snow.
I was watching the weather channel this morning when I got home from work to see how the rest of the day would unfold (or at least, I had it on while I got caught up on some blogs) and the guy who was standing outside the studio and almost lost his scarf was going on about the high winds and cold temps and the traffic snarls and the more snow to come and how it was also messy as hell out there, so be careful. About 20 minutes later, he came back on, as they do, to repeat the same video and message, except this time it was "icy as hell out there". Finally, I guess he decided to tone down his language, because 20 minutes later he came back on, with the same scarf and same winds and same videos, but by now it was "icy as well out there".
Now, I think it is time for my nap.
