Baby, It's Cold Outside!

John, December, 1988, age 4

Yesterday I felt spoiled here in the middle of winter. It was 61 beautiful degrees - and sunny to boot. I reveled in the sun's warm rays as I went about my errands.

But now, according to the forecast, it's time to pay the piper. The high forecast for today is 42 degrees. That's 19 degrees colder! And a low of 27. 27? For crying out loud, this is supposed to be the deep south. But wait! What's this for Thursday? A high of 35 and a low of 16?!

Here's what I recommend. If you absolutely have to get out, bundle up real good. And, don't forget your hat!

If you don't have to brave the cold, cozy up with a good book.

And don't forget the hot chocolate.

That should do the trick.
And just remember, in this part of the country, the cold spells usually don't last too long. We'll get a respite. It'll probably be in the 70's next week. At least I hope so!
