If I have the heat in my apartment on its lowest setting, my apartment gets pretty warm but if I turn the heat off it gets really cold after a while. So I’ve been alternating between turning the heat on and off which is fine during the day but not so much fun when I have to walk to my dining room in the middle of the night! Today a rather obvious suggestion was made to me which I had somehow not thought of: to keep the window in bedroom open a little while keeping the heat on all night. I attempted to open my window this evening but it that is presently impossible! I knew that the windows in my apartment weren’t the greatest and there was so frost on them but I was not prepared for just how frozen this window was! The good news is that I think that opening just the inner window is definitely allowing some cold air in.
Yes, I’m writing any post about the weather. Clearly, nothing is really happening in my life.
Anyway, I was just looking on The Weather Network’s website and noticed that the temperature had risen to -23 which is sadly a considerable improvement over the -30 I saw this morning. I also noticed the following message beside the current temperature: “It is sunny now but rain could be on it’s way, track the precipitation with your Satellite and Radar map.” Of course, there is a zero percent chance of this at these temperatures! You’d think The Weather Network would realize this.
After one of the most frustrating weeks of work ever, I really didn’t feel like doing much today. However, I saw that it was +3 and sunny outside and that it is forecast to drop well into the minus double digits overnight and not get anywhere near the current temperature anytime in the foreseeable future. So, I made myself go on a walk. While the weather was great the sidewalks, with a few short exceptions, were not! It was a good reminder of why I haven’t walked to work in forever even though if the sidewalks were clear it would be a ten minute walk at most.
For some reason, January seems to have been going on forever and today is only the 19th!
Lately, we have actually been seeing positive temperatures which is quite surprising and would seemingly makes things better but somehow time still seems to passing in an incredibly slow manner. Tomorrow morning’s high is just -19 even though it is still just 0 outside and as it’s snowing, real winter seems to be returning.
Not much has been happening which may explain why this month seems endless. Actually, that’s not quite true; while nothing is happening in the present, I have made exciting plans for the summer. I have a trip booked to Uganda! I’ve been wanting to go there for years but it just never happened because it is the kind of trip that actually needs to be booked well in advance (due mostly to the limited availability of gorilla trekking permits) and I have booked most of my recent vacations not all that long before departing on them. It is good to have something definite to look forward to but it is still so far away (nearly six months).
Maybe now that I have written this pretty pointless post, time will manage to pass a bit faster?
Back in the summer I wrote a post on ignorant parking here in North Battleford. That post only included one picture. I have collected a few pictures for the second post in what may sadly become quite a long series of posts. Here are the new pictures:
