January impersonating spring

It has been shockingly warm here for the last  while.  Yesterday morning, I was actually surprised that I survived the walk across my parking lot; it was so icy!  This afternoon, it reached +7 though the wind made it feel a bit colder.  If I didn’t know better, I’d think it was spring.  However, colder weather is supposed to be coming in a few days though thankfully not -30ish cold. I was convinced to suspend my laziness and went on a walk this afternoon.  The sidewalks were highly variable; some were clear and even dry while others were a complete mess.  If people actually shovelled their sidewalks, walking would be much more pleasant!

I can finally feel my fingers again!

They weather has finally approved after a prolonged period of frigid temperatures (-30ish).  It is so nice to go outside and be able to feel my fingers.   In the winter that is all I really ask for.  The temperature actually was positive today.  Some people were actually complaining that the warm temperature was making too big of mess.  Yes, it makes a mess but it is a million times better than dealing with -30 so I really don’t think the complaints are really warranted.

Not much has been going on (other than work, of course) but I did get a new car a couple of weeks ago.  It is a Hyundai Elantra GT.  So far, I really like the car but getting it completely ready was much more of an ordeal than it should have been but I won’t get into that story.
