Gaah 7 above, feels like 9 below. High allegedly will be 22 today (these are all Farenheit temps; in Celsius that's, er, motherphloxin' cold).

No precip.

The bus stop and the waterfront will be brutal. Got me on 2 prs of pant long underwear, a long underwear shirt, boots, suede shirt over regular long-sleeve shirt. Will add hat, scarf, gloves and of course parka once I'm outside.

Here is where teleportation would come in awfully handy.


Days like this I am thankful I now drive to work. Certainly do not miss standing in the artic wind tunnel of Quincy Adams T station for a half hour as it seems trains never run on schedule on extremely cold days.

I recall taking the boatride from Logan to the Hotel and sailing through a blinding snow squall. It was absolutely just like the Alaskan King Crab boats in the Bering sea.

I pulled my respectable cold weather coat out of the closet and found it dusted with Hair of Pit Bull. Hair of Pit Bull compliments Basic Black.

I had the fortune to be up in northern VT yesterday and this morning. That was cold...

I really have no clue how people can live up there. Have to take f'n dirt roads for 20 miles to get from one town to another, the only places for lunch are delis in gas stations. People say FL is "nice place to visit, not to live," but VT fits that bill more.

Helps keep the tourists away.

do you have on two pairs of pants or two sets of longjohns?

seems like something's not right there - like maybe pants over longjohns? or maybe a skirt over longjohns?

don't you get cold in the office just wearing a shirt?

Shocked


Yesterday's outdoor ensemble, from top to bottom:
polar fleece scarf wrapped around head to keep ears warm (black)
parka (light green and white)
scrunchie for hair (blue)
glasses
wool scarf to keep neck warm (tan)
suede shirt (blue), under that
long-sleeve cotton shirt (purple), under that
long-sleeve long-john shirt (tan), under that
bra (tan), now moving down
gloves (tan)
panties (uh, white, I think), over that
long-john pants with lacy cuffs (white), over that
long-john pants without lacy cuffs over the lacy cuffed ones (tan), over that
work pants (blue)
socks (blue), over them
boots (black)

I resembled the kid from A Christmas Story.

Doubt they want to do that, tourism/skiing is the big income source. Too bad incest doesn't generate money for the state.

Still no snow.... but with this latest windy cold snap, we've developed some good ice. My nephew and I wandered around by two ponds today and I took some pix. I think the ice will be good for skating by this weekend.....

Came to a quick end, though. For a while there were about 2 inches on the ground and the air was thick with flakes and it looked quite promising. Now the sky is clear and blue and the sun is melting it all already.

Oh well. It was pretty while it lasted.

I'm taking pictures, but won't be developed for a while.

As per Walter's idea, here's an image from a webcam:

This one is boring but shows how much is in the sky right now:

This puts Boston 72 hours behind NYC in the large cosmic scheme.
