We got a new furnace installed on Tuesday. Our old one was making a horrible noise. It's a good thing we got a new one when we did. The high today is negative 3. Isn't that a mathematical fallacy? How could the high be negative?
Oh, and it's incredibly windy. The wind chill is probably negative 30.
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, why the heck would someone who grew up in California move there? What the heck was she thinking? It's nice here in other ways. (I'll let you wonder what they are!) And, as an added bonus, I bought ice cream and frozen dinners at the grocery today, and I didn't have to worry about anything thawing out on the way home! Of course, I had to sit in my frozen automobile and wait for the inside of the windshield to thaw so that I could see before I could leave the parking lot and go home again, but I had absolutely no worries about that ice cream thawing. None at all! And if the freezer goes out, we can always just put things outside! Now, you can't say that about Northern California.
