Walk To The Mailbox

Several days ago, hominysnark and I were discussing how in Florida you only have two sets of clothes: the set you wear in Florida and the set for visiting other states. Today, I have to take that back. It's 40 degrees, but with the windchill, it feels like 30! I had to bust out all my California winter clothes. I geared up in long-sleeved shirt, t-shirt, fleece, and wind-proof jacket just to go to the mailbox down the block. It's nice to know that the layering system works. The only things that were cold were my face, hands and feet. Oh yes, my feet. I'd decided to forgo wearing socks and sneakers and just tromp out in my sandals. My toes were so cold when I came back. But the crisp air was refreshing. It made it feel like it was really winter and reminded me a bit of California.

Yeah, I scampered out to the mailbox this morning (before the sun was up) when it was 36 degrees and wind chill was probably in the 20s. I did okay until I turned the corner and took a blast of wind in the face.

Then I said some words of which the Baby Jesus would not approve.

oh dude, that wind was the worst!! Chris was hungry, and we had a couple of things in the house that we keep for days when we're too lazy to go to the store. Well we ate those things, like cans of soup. Because it was just too cold to go outside!
