More Cold Weather on the Way

As a matter of course I keep an eye on the mid to long term weather outlook. I just like to see what is coming, or rather as is on the parries, what may be coming. Predicting weather out here on the Great Plains is tricky at best, but it seems that cold weather is about to return in time for the weekend. 

While I am not enthused, I am not scared, I have already been through the -20C’s in Wanda already this winter and I was okay. I don’t have to worry about my pipes freezing and I know how to keep warm. 

I am almost thankful for that cold snap a couple of weeks ago, as it allowed me to teach myself not only how to survive in this cold weather but that I can not only survive but thrive. . . I can do this, I can live in Wanda all winter and be okay.

Don’t get me wrong, I hate the cold and winter, but there is little I can do about it, winter comes every year and my job is here in Calgary. Such is life, and I will certainly enjoy the warm weather when it comes and relish the first time I get to shower in Wanda after she is de-winterized. 

For now I will hunker down, stay warm, spend as little as I can and focus on paying that second card off by April 1. Then I can focus on that final card and delight in its imminent demise. 

I will keep myself busy by writing the Tanea novel and getting it ready for publication. That is something I can do, that costs me nothing but time and electricity, I have enough of both.
