Deep Freeze

It is so cold here that there are no polite words to describe it.  Even P and M are complaining, and they are never cold.  A has developed chilblains, which you can read about here.  (She is fine now, by the way.)  It is so cold that when it hits 20 I am inspired by how warm it feels, so warm that maybe I’d even consider ice-skating outdoors.  No relief ahead, according to the weather report.  I’ll have to while the winter away with images of sun and warmth.  Hope I can make it through.
