It's Going to be Freakin' Cold

At some point this morning, a cold front is going to show up here. There will be rain and LOTS of wind. This is what we call a Blue Norther, and they really aren't very fun. The wind is going to throw the temperatures here into freezing, and we won't see them rise too much for the rest of the week--a hard freeze. The weatherman even said the S-word--snow. This made the entire city collectively lose their minds in giddy anticipation. It made me cringe.

I hate this roller-coaster weather. If it were just cold and stayed that way, I would get acclimated to it and be just fine. Instead, my brain has just spent the past couple of days enjoying beautiful sunny weather in the 70s. My cats were just in the backyard eating random lizards and just lazing about in their contentedness, while my son tried to pedal his bike around our cul de sac. I actually contemplated putting on shorts this weekend, completely ignoring that the sheer whiteness of my legs can be seen from space. That's how great the weather was yesterday.

My brain is going to have a difficult time adjusting to the sudden plunge in temperature, and is going to be completely useless. I'll be in such a fog that I won't get anything done. Nobody is going to want to get out of bed because it's cold, and who can blame them? Can we cancel school/work on account of hibernation? It really is going to be sleep-in weather tomorrow. I don't want to get out of bed while it's cold outside, either!!
