OMG, it’s so cold! I’m sitting at a desk, wearing a wool sweater, cords, scarf, hat, and coat!
It’s so cold that some of the buildings at work don’t have heat because parts of the steam system had to be shut down because of overwork (or something like that). The infrastructure can’t deal with the cold.
The only saving grace is that so far there’s been very little precipitation. Otherwise sleet, freezing rain, and snow might have to come back into my vocabulary!!! There’s already been news reports about black ice. Dude, people here do not know how to deal with black ice. Black ice is NEWS! (Okay, that particular article is about SoCal, but I saw a report on black ice on the evening news last night also.)
This is just not how it’s supposed to be!!!
