Saying that this weekend was a cold one would be an extreme understatement. Temperatures dropped to well below freezing (-21 with windchill at one point when I checked.) Saturday I was supposed to work from 1p-9p. That did not happen. Our parking lot was filled with snow. It came up to my knees in some parts (I'm 5'10"). So once I battled the parking lot (I was already going to be late at this point) I hit the road. I got to the end of my street and then... bye bye windshield wiper. It flew off. Luckily my other one caught it. So I went around the block back to my apartment. I called in & told them either someone with a truck needed to come get me or I was not going in. The decided that I just didn't need to come in.
Today wasn't a whole lot better. On the bright side the snow had stopped. Temperatures were still below freezing however. I left early this morning, well a little before 9am, so that I could go get a new windshield wiper before work. I nearly got stuck in my parking lot again. Afte fighting with it I got out, got to the auto parts store, & safely to work. I came home later in the evening to a freezing cold apartment. It had been cold for awhile but down right freezing with this weekends temperatures. Thanks to heating problems & super drafty windows are apartment was a balmy 48 degrees by the window... the rest of the apartment wasn't much warmer. So we turned on the oven for awhile which helped a little but not a lot. I now lay under two comforters in jeans, long johns, socks, slippers, a long sleeve shirt, & a fleece & I'm comfortable. Not hot or very warm by any means.
Is it spring yet???
