Actually, when we left the hotel for the office on Thursday morning, it was -3 degrees in Peabody (pronounced pee-bid-e) Massachusetts. I've been around quite a while now and even I don't remember the last time I've been in -3 degree weather in an east coast state that wasn't Maine.
I'm not whining, it was an interesting experience! The inside of your nose freezes every time you breathe giving you a weird sticky feeling. Your fingers are almost instantly cold, yet I had clogs on with no socks and my heels (exposed to the frigid temps) were still very warm. I'm just glad I didn't have to stand around in it for extended periods of time.
People say 'that's global warming for you' and others reply 'what do you mean global warming? it's -3!!' and to that I say that it IS global warming because we have gotten used to warmer temperatures (think anything above 25 degrees) when in fact, it was not uncommon to experience temps lower then 25 degrees.
It is what it is. I got a good laugh out of the experience; no complaints here.
So yes, once again it was off on a work road trip - I don't think that work trips qualify for the road trip blog anymore because they are pretty 'same ole/same ole'. That said - if something good happens, I'll post about it over there. On this trip the only thing that was out of the ordinary was that we ended up staying an extra day...oh and the random snow showers..and I figured that since we ate at Texas Roadhouse so much, I should buy some stock, so I did.
