It is 1°F outside. Yesterday’s high was 13°. Our pipes have been frozen since yesterday morning. We (and by “we” I mean mostly the husband) have been trying to thaw them out but they are staying stubbornly frozen. We do have a “frost proof hydrant” outside which is still working so we are not completely without water, just terribly, terribly inconvenienced.
We spent most of the weekend being couch potatoes, watching movies on SyFy. We had already seen most of them before. One was new to me: Sin City, a very cool movie. It was done in black and white “noir” style, except a few things were in color. And, weirdly, blood was bright white. Except, sometimes it was dark red, depending on which character was bleeding. The action was what I call “deliberately bad” – like a parody but all done very dark and serious. Anyway, very weird/cool/fun movie.
We finished off the weekend with Raiders of the Lost Ark, which never gets old. That ended at 8:00 so we watched a biography of Josephine Baker. That was very interesting. I had heard of her but didn’t know anything about her. So, that was our weekend. It’s still supposed to stay below freezing today. Perhaps tomorrow we will begin to thaw out.
