I looked like an idiot when I got on the bus this morning!
If anyone sees Nancy L, please relieve her of that heavy load, take her home and tell her I said “Thank you” for this little beauty today!
made me laugh out loud again! It is 9 degrees fahrenheit (-12 Celsius) where I am- so I get it!!
Laughter is good for the heart and helps to warm the body!
It’s the other passengers who’ll look like idiots when the bus gets stuck in a 12 foot snowdrift!
True, But I hope she didn’t have to buy an extra bus ticket for that lot!
Quite a picture, made me laugh and I’m wearing long underwear even in the house.
Celia, full Length thermal Leggings, are this seasons ‘must have’. I would not survive without them!
Oh but this is funny! I hope the weather is exaggerated? Sounds cold…too cold! ox
4°C here at 16:00 and I am about to give in and light the fire for the evening!
I am so sick of this weather, have had to cancel so many appointments, repeatedly, Today is a new twist, 130k/hr winds. At least all the snow was blown from yesterday. Now for the ice…
Brrrrr! Stay safe and warm.
FUN! And brrr . . . it’s chilly here too.
I watched from indoors today!
One can never be too prepared! Now if you’ll excuse me, I must repair to my bomb shelter.
I was busy testing mine, and forgot to come out!
Good one> I heard the same thing yesterday and wondered if you need all that stuff if you are never far from a heat source.
I suppose it is for people travelling on the highways: Get stuck and there is no way to turn back.
We are in a drought here. It has been in the upper 70’s for weeks, with a drying North wind to boot. 64 last night at 9:30PM… We really need the moisture that seems to be all around us…sigh
I’ll send you some rain, we have more than enough!
You hardly need all that gear in your heat.
That made me laugh until I thought about all the “emergency” items I carry on my person in the form of a large handbag. Not a shovel and rocksalt, but I likely have enough bandages, aspirin,handkerchiefs, and antihistamines to operate a small outpatients.
I do keep a winter kit in the car, that thankfully I have never needed to use.
Sewing kit, small scissors, plasters, safety pins, hand wipes, tissues and a couple of individual sugar sachets were to be found in my bag. The last item was for a couple of friends who had diabetes.
