Greetings from the Arctic Tundra

Let me start off by saying, I don't mind the cold; I do however have beef when it is -8 degrees outside at 7:00 am when I need to be on my way to work. When my car has been started 10 minutes prior on full blast heat with heated seats on and it's still an ice box. Oy! Maine, you're killing me! Last winter it was unseasonably warm, so when it's only a high of 19 degrees it's a bit rough to adjust. Tomorrow is supposed to be a high of 32 degrees and it is going to feel like Spring. Mainer's are a funny breed, we truly are. It will be March and 45 outside and I kid you not, people will be in shorts and a tee shirts running errands, and the occasional pair of flip flops can be seen sported around town.

The layering process I go through just for a five minute walk to the office is a little humorous these days. A dress, cardi, sweatshirt, long johns, scarf, hat, two pairs of wool socks, Sherpa lined LL Bean duck boots, dress coat and sunnies later and I'm ready for work!

Just got to keep on keeping on, as all the cool kids say. But in all seriousness, bundle up, little babies! My nose was on the verge of falling off and frost bite is common this time of year.
