An interesting week:

     The 'polar vortex' cold snap has been fun. Walking home Tuesday it was -18 out, and I was very grateful for the wind at my back. In the morning Wednesday, it was -28, and I was the only person who got on the bus at a place other than the park and ride! For Wednesday evening it was -15 out heading home, and -26 or so heading in Thursday morning.
     My wonderful boss's boss called a jeans day Wednesday to help us stay warmer. I appreciate that!

     Amazon Prime was a great blessing, as I was able to order clear ski goggles, pay a couple extra bucks for one-day delivery, and have them in time for Wednesday morning. They made a big difference since I didn't have to deal with my eyes getting cold or eyelashes freezing closed.

     Especially grateful for heat in this weather, as some people were without power and my work building ran off generator all day Wednesday. And for my heating pad, since when it's this cold, helps a lot to hang it in a bag under my coat and use it for warmth as I walk to/from the bus stop.

     Finished the winter picture I've been working on since December, so I'm happy to be free to gear up for the next art project.

So glad you made it through the intense cold. Glad your temps
are going back up.
That would be brutal to be without heat in that kind of cold.

Indeed! The downstairs admin had her heat go out and my boss's drain pipes froze overnight. I'm guessing the repair folks are very busy!
