Now I know that some of you are freezing cold where you are. I read online this morning that my old stomping ground, Sandpoint Idaho is sitting at 23 degrees and it's snowing. In other places, Detroit Michigan reads 24 and cloudy, New York is 30 degrees, Atlanta is 29 degrees Seattle is 44 degrees and Phoenix is a balmy 59 with scattered clouds.
So I know most of you will roll your eyes when I start complaining about how cold it is down here in Orlando. The weather at this writing is 34 degrees with some rain. This morning outside my backdoor was the remnants of sleet! Now for most of you that's normal winter weather, but down here in Orlando Florida the normal high for this time of year is usually around 70 degrees. So you can see that even though 34 is about right for you all in the north, a 30 degree difference is pretty hard on us.
I've heard tell of power outages, heaters blowing up, black ice, and a myriad of other weather related problems due to the extreme cold. All I know is as I sit here, I have my heater on, but I'm still wearing a thermal shirt, two sweaters, pants, slipper socks and slippers AND have a blanket wrapped around myself.
And I'm still cold!!!
So, on days like this, it's really hard to believe anything about global warning. The following LOL NEWS said it best and cracked me up...
Do I believe our weather's changing. Oh yeah. But I agree...it's hard to buy the party line about global warning when we are all trying to keep our noses from freezing off!
I'm going to sit here, try to fix my &^%^$#@*&^ mail program and stay warm. I'm also watching the Syfy channel where they have an all day disaster movie marathon. I'm a happy camper! LOL
So now it's your turn. Where do you live and how cold is it?
