it's cooooold! [Dec. 8th, 2005|11:22 am]

It's very cold out - 26 or so now, and the radio says that it feels like 9. 9!! Yikes. NI was closed until 10 AM this morning (so was UT) and when I got down to my car, I had to spend 40 minutes de-icing it (with djedi - thanks a lot!). Although part of that was not realizing that if the engine isn't on, the heat will blow air, but it won't really be hot. Oh well.

It was neat - there was a layer of ice over all of my car - windshields, windows, top, everything. I couldn't roll my window down because of the ice. But eventually the heat and front and rear defrosters did the job.

It was a bit creepy to see cars on Mopac, but going 20 MPH lower than the speed limit. Didn't see any accidents, either, which is good. Now I'm warming up with a nice cup of tea.

So, do you people in the north (or north of here - Carrie said it was 3 degrees in St. Louis yesterday!) have to drip your pipes every night for like months? Or are the pipes better insulated up there or something?

up here they bury the pipes deep. :)

here's a fun fact about winter I forgot about until I took the ipod out today: when it gets cold out, the cords on the headphone freeze...not like frozen solid, but very stiff. aiyiyi.
