Icy and cold

Posted on 06/01/2014. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

I’ve been kept inside my base-actually my home office for most of the past couple of days. My area, West Des Moines, Iowa, USA, has been under a wind chill warning or wind chill watch since early last week and there have been reports that the wind chills have registered well below 32 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. 

So far, I think I’m doing fine. But I am concerned about going stir-crazy if any of this should continue for another couple of days or so. I enjoy being outdoors taking photos and doing errands–in other words, living!

There is one good thing, though–I decided not to go on t that ski trip which I might have taken otherwise.Last year, I came back with a broken butt and I was cursing on the slopes and in my motel room in Breckenridge, Colorado.  I would have been stuck in congested airports perhaps in Boston, Denver or Minneapolis, waiting for the cold weather or ice to ease. As I understand it, the entire North American continent is paralyzed. That is one annoyance of which I am spared this year.
