The last few days have been very cold around here. At the moment with the wind chill the temperature is 0 °F / -18 ° C and it’s been colder then that lately.
The roads are so frozen that you are quite literally driving on one long sheet of ice. You have to teach yourself to drive differently. Like having to slow down very gradually. You can’t go to fast on turns and you can’t drive to fast in general because one gust of wind is all it would take to put you in the ditch. Their have been a few times where I feel like I’m one of the truck drivers from “Ice Road Truckers” on T.V.
The lakes around here have frozen over and more often then not I see people playing ice hockey on them. Winter around here is very beautiful despite the freezing cold. It’s like everything has gone black and white.
Now however, I am ready for spring to come with a vengeance.
“Its cold outside,
There’s no kind of atmosphere,
I’m all alone,
More or less.
Let me fly,
Far away from here,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.”
