Brrrrrrrr!   2 comments

Greetings, all!

Like efurryone in the US and Canada, we are suffering through very cold temperatures right now. Mommy has set practically every faucet in the house on a trickle after coming home to discover the kitchen pipes not quite frozen, but darn close. It didn’t take long to defrost them and apparently no harm done, but a disaster averted nonetheless! Still, quite a concession from the woman who wakes up from a sound sleep whenever she hears water dripping. Gonna have to wear earplugs if she wants to sleep tonight!

Miss D is so cold, she’s shivering as she leans into Mommy, cuddling on the couch. Mommy heard no complaints as she slid the UNC sweater over Miss D’s head and gave her hips an extra long rub down. Needless to say, neither of us is interested in patrolling the neighborhood tonight.

The electric company has asked customers to conserve energy for the next 24 hours, such as turning the thermostat down a couple of degrees, especially overnight. Meanwhile the water company has warned customers about freezing pipes and suggests we turn the thermostat up a couple of degrees and leave it at that constant temperature even overnight. WTF!!!

So we’re leaving the thermostat alone, and set a fire burning in the fireplace. We’ve turned off and unplugged as many appliances as we can, leaving only the TV and a  candle or two for light (and the Christmas tree, b/c Mommy was feeling too lazy to take it down after Twelfth Night).
