In case you didn’t’ know it, I’m a reptile. I lose heat quickly; even though I’m no longer a sun-worshipper, I am a warm weather gal!
I joke about this all the time. The truth of it is that I get a bit stiff during colder times of year, so I’m grateful that I live in the Southwestern part of the United States where the winter climate is milder than most.
When people shake my hands I sometimes apologize as my hands are cold. People often say, “Cold hands, warm heart!”
Today I was on a business phone call where the participants were located in various parts of the country. The current temperature turned out to be the ice breaker (no pun intended.) One person said it was75 degrees Fahrenheit. Another said it was minus 35 degrees if you factor in the wind chill. The temperature span was mind-boggling!!
For the area where I live it’s much colder than usual, but I really have no concept whatsoever of what it’s like to experience the type of cold that’s gripping various parts of my country.
I reminisced about hot chocolate and pan dulce, the Mexican sweet bread I loved to eat when I was growing up. It was definitive cold weather comfort food wen I was younger.
So now I’m really curious!
How is the weather in your neck of the woods? Balmy? Bitter cold?
Tell me about the winter you’re experiencing!
