So, yeah it got cold last night but not all that cold, only down to -14C (ish). It has and will get much colder, and stay there. That’s life on the prairies in winter.
For me I just grumble, look to my goals in order to remind myself why I am doing this and just carry on.
I may not do so as gracefully as I perhaps could, but at least I carry on. (Grumbling, muttering and cursing away as I do).
I can endure the cold and get done what I need to get done . . . but I don’t like doing it.
I know this is an odd thing to say for someone who is seriously considering moving to Manitoba where it is cold and snowy for what seems like a frighteningly longer period of time. (Like . . . 18 months of the year . . . or so it seems).
I remind myself that dealing with cold and snowy weather will be easier when you have a house that you actually heat . . . (what a concept).
Again, yesterday and today will be cold but in true prairie fashion it will be 8C tomorrow and so the snow will star to melt.
I may dump on Friday as a precautionary measure because the weather seems to be dancing around freezing for the daily high for the next few weeks.
The last thing I want is frozen Black and grey water tanks, so I don’t mind dumping my tanks a tad early this year.
All in all . . . I can live in and endure the cold . . . I just don’t like to.
So . . . that means that I don’t have “Seasonal Affected Disorder” I have “COLD Affected Disorder.”
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
