Today is our first morning with sub-zero (Fahrenheit) temps: -1º at 8 am. I know, I know– this is kind of lame. Normally by mid-January we’d have had multiple nights down this low, but it’s been a bit of a warm winter so far. Also, in spite of the weather, it’s a relatively toasty 50º inside this morning– a result of having a guest here for the weekend. Said guest told us that at her apartment she has some sort of heater that doesn’t have a an actual thermostat, just a dial that can be set warmer or cooler until one feels comfortable. She recently became curious about what temperature she was actually living at, and bought an thermometer– finding, to her shock, that her apartment was 78º! She told us that she’s resolved to wean herself down to 68. We are providing moral support.
Going out to play in the mountains now.
