Do you remember the alpaca stranded mittens from Halloween 2007? This morning is a layered alpaca morning. Wind chill is -21. Yes, Minus 21. The school district finally called with a two hour delay at 5:17 AM. Pittsburgh Public Schools had a two hour delay, then changed it to being closed. That doesn't happen very often.
Just one of the smaller divided light panels in a bedroom window this morning shows how cold it is. In the same bedroom, the east facing window is totally frosted over.
And, wanna read something amazing? It's to be 50 on Wednesday, Christmas Eve. (Shakes head and heads off toward the coffee pot.)
We are grateful for water and power and strong truck batteries.
