A Cold Day In Eastern Idaho
As I've said before, I walk about a mile to my bus stop each morning. Although last night's wind chill warning gave me the idea that I was going to be in for an unpleasant walk, I still wasn't ready for it.
I felt the cold through a long-sleeved T-shirt, a long-sleeved flannel shirt, and my coat. The skin on my legs was numb within five minutes. My eyes were watering and the tears were freezing on my eyelashes. I had to take off my glasses since my breath was creating frost on the lenses. This is what happens when the temperature is -10°F with a wind chill of -20°F.
It's still better than California's obscene cost of living.
