Getting climatized!

09 January 2010 00:53:20

The thermometer read -1.5 this morning as I ran out to the garden.  I actually thought it was warm! 

As I walked to the train station, all wrapped up, I thought that this is glorious weather as the sun was shining and the skies were clear.  The only thing that stopped me from skipping along the footpath, singing the Sound of Music song 'These are a few of my favorite things' was the ice!

However, I called into an office today, which re-opened on Monday and I nearly froze.  The heating system, while working, has not yet heated the building.  There are no thermometers in there but I would think that it must have been well in the minus degree category as crystallisation nearly occured on the tip of my nose!

God that's dreadful. I pity the poor workers. They must have had to work in multilayers.

Hope the heating gets back to normal soon for those office workers Mairin.
