In all seriousness, it has been colder than our normal winter temps, which, by the way, YAY! Boots, sweaters, jeans…I love it! Last Friday and yesterday we didn’t get any warmer than 47 degrees, and over the last two days at school I haven’t taken my jacket off once. My house heater has been running non-stop for over a week, and it’s only set for the low 60s.
The last two mornings, we’ve actually had ice on the walkways around campus. Two areas are especially bad and have to be taped off since using sand or salt is unheard of here. Yesterday, before it was blocked, my principal slipped and fell on it, and I skated across a patch of ice but luckily stayed standing. This morning while walking across the grass to my room the frozen grass crunched under my feet, and a member of our support staff slipped and fell hard on the ice. She had to be taken to the hospital.
But don’t worry, we’ll survive until Friday, when it’s supposed to be back up in the 70s.
