I am used to Oklahoma’s wildly variable winter weather. I knew that we would almost certainly have more cold weather, but I felt, when temperatures rose into the 60s and even 70s soon after our record breaking cold and snowfall, that Mother Nature had decided to give us our entire winter all at once and that once we were past that Event we would have nothing but beautiful spring-like weather. Well, we all know Mother Nature is a bitch. She has no sense of fairness at all.
It has been cold all week. Mostly it has stayed above freezing and I keep telling myself that compared to the -21° we had back in February this really isn’t that bad but I’m cold, darn it! Where are the hot flashes when I really need them? This morning when I got up it was 32°F now it’s 37°. The house never really warms up on cold, cloudy days. I feel like I should be sewing – I want to be sewing – but my hands are too cold.
I need to go to town again today. I need to order the Formica for our kitchen countertops. I might be able to get the same as what we have now so we can save the island countertop but if I can’t get that I found 3 other blues that I like equally well. I was hoping it would warm up before I have to go. It was supposed to clear up and get up to 60°F. but it doesn’t look very hopeful for that right now. Still… you know what they say, “If you don’t like the weather here just wait a minute.”
