Polar Vortex, Take 2
You guys, I am officially sick of winter. Our heating and hot water bills are off the charts. My skin is so dry I get a cut or abrasion every time I bump against something. I am eating bread three meals a day with snacks in between and still my body craves more. Whenever I find a sunny spot I sit in it for as long as I can, cat-like. I want to ride my horse, but it's too cold, so I worry about him instead. Is he staying warm enough? Is he coping ok with his frequently frozen solid water bucket? When will we be able to hack out without worrying about the ice? Will there ever be green and growing things in the world again?!

This winter is crazy! Hang in there spring will come again.ReplyDelete
It has been SO COLD. And we haven't gotten nearly the snow we usually get. I can't remember a colder, less snowy winter in all the years I've been in Vermont.Delete
During the couple of days with no snow last week, I saw the grass trying to green up under our solar panels/run-in sheds! There is hope!ReplyDelete
It's not that I don't believe you, I just think the universe is cruel and giving us a brief snatch of hope before crushing it again with sub-zero temperatures and a week without riding...Delete
Wow that looks miserable! Stay warm!ReplyDelete
Worse today. -15 for my walk to work. *whimper*Delete
Ee stay warm!ReplyDelete
I am doing my level best to eat as many calories to burn as possible...! Especially since today it will not go above zero. At all. Not for a single minute all day. Waaaaaaah.Delete
Yep, it sucks. -30 here today...whoo weeReplyDelete
Ooooh, heat wave coming for the weekend!ReplyDelete
Yeah. I'm ready for the 20s-30s heat wave this weekend! Haha. I have rides planned for both Saturday and Sunday as a result.ReplyDelete
I'm beginning to forget what warm feels like. Le sigh.
I'm so done with it. When we moved to our area, we were pleased with the fact that winter averages were generally supposed 30's-40's during the day, 20's at night. I was told to not buy a heavyweight blanket, as I would not need it. Now I'm sorry I didn't! This is awful, awful, awful.ReplyDelete
When I was little living in the tropics and hating the never ending heat, I used to joke about moving to Alaska. I take it baaack!!!! Mercy!
