A Tale of Two Winters

I have seen two different predictions for this upcoming winter. One says that it will be warmer than normal and the other says it will be bitterly colder than normal. 

I gotta tell you, I am hoping for the former, rather than the later. (But that’s just me).

Warmer winters are so much nicer, I can stay in Spring/Fall Mode longer. (Meaning that I can use my sinks and toilets longer.)

As well there is the fact that I don’t have to do my “Michelin Man” impersonation on a daily basis (You know, bundle up to 5 – 7 layers just to lounge around the house and watch things freeze).

Yet, the truth is that a big, bad, nasty, bitterly cold winter does not scare me (it doesn’t enthuse me either) but it does not scare me.

After surviving my first night at -30C in Wanda, not much scares me, because I know that I can handle it.

I take each day in stride and ask “What can I get away with today?”  

As in: 

Can I keep water liquid just sitting around the house?
Can I run my fridge for half a day rather than 24/7?
Can I open the: windows, vents, and door so as to enjoy some fresh air?
Can I wear normal clothes and not bundle up so much that I have trouble bending my knees and elbows?

You know, normal, everyday stuff like that.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
