Well, it's freaking cold this morning!!! So cold, in fact, that DH hasn't been able to get to work as yet. Went out to start his truck this morning, and it's not even turning over. Sounds like the battery may be dead. *sigh* Thing is, it was plugged in ALL DAY yesterday, without him going anywhere, and ALL NIGHT last night.

It was -45 this morning when he went out to start the truck. It's now "only" -42. Again.... *shiver*

I hope my car starts! It was plugged in all night, but it's a good bit older than DH's truck, with an older battery. We'll see. I've got to leave a bit early (hopefully) in order to get my middle sis's birthday cards to the PO. so they get to her in time. I also need to get over to the bank & cash the check DH's grandma gave me for my birthday. That'll give me $40 of my own spending money in Anchorage when we head down in a week & a half. (Birthday money from Mom & Grandma.)

One of the many sucky things about weather like this??? Not only is it too cold to go out & do anything, it's so cold that even though the sun is coming up earlier & setting later, we've got the blinds closed & the curtains drawn to keep the heat in. So we're not getting to see much of the sun anyway. *sigh* I can't wait till next month when it'll finally start warming up, as well as being a lot lighter.


Connie, yes, it is a small world. I'm often amazed at how small. That is funny that Norm was on Ellsworth doing some teaching at the approximately same time I was in pig-tails & coveralls playing in the street with my preschool friends.


Edited to add: My car started on the first try. DH jumped his truck from my car. And we're both now at work. (Just jumping online really quick before I start work to post this small update.)

Thanks for the wishes, Whim. It WILL warm up. Eventually. But the forcasters are predicting temps like this all week.


I think that'll suffice for today.

Have a Blessed Day!

I'm glad your car started and that you both managed to get to work.
