the part I do mind is the c-c-cold that comes along with the snow, although at least the c-c-cold here is, for the most part, tolerable. unlike the place where I used to live, what's it called again?
that's right. Minnesota. also known as the land of two seasons: winter is coming and winter is here. which reminds me, have you jump started your kid today? sorry, I couldn't resist.
anyway, I'm guessing that at some point in your life, you've probably heard the phrase "it's a dry heat," am I right? well, here in Flagstaff we use a similar phrase to describe the cold, something that I just now (like right this second!) made up. we like to say, and I promise you're going to love this one, "it's a warm cold." talk about creative, hey?
so what's a warm cold? well, it's where the temperature actually feels ten degrees warmer than it really is. and I swear I'm not making this up, nor am I just saying that to get you guys to move here, either. it's a true fact. no, really, it is. if I could explain it, I would. something about being at a higher elevation and so the heat from the sun is more intense, blah blah blah.
all this to say that I should be more appreciative of the weather. wow.
you know, suddenly I'm really (like VERY) thankful that I just had a baby. because in case these posts don't make any sense, at least I can blame my screwiness on this postpartum business. otherwise, you'd probably question me about having my head examined. although I'm pretty sure all they'd find in there is a few pennies and some skittles anyway.
