Great Things Lie Ahead

January 9, 2007

It's -15°F in Anchorage this morning, and the internet tells me it's -44°F in Fairbanks.

This morning I got out of bed, let the dog out, showered, started the car (which I had neglected to plug in, whoops), got dressed, and then decided to "cuddle with the dog" on the bed. That's the story I'm sticking to, even though when I woke ten minutes later the dog had kenneled herself. I pulled the towel off of my head and, in the process of dragging a brush through my hair, realized that there was still an awful lot of conditioner still in my hair.

What a great start to what will surely be a great day.


You plug your car in?

When it gets really cold, cars don't want to start because the oil is congealed and the engine block is frozen and the battery is frozen. So you can install things like block heaters and oil pan heaters and battery blankets, all which run off of electricity to keep the engine warmer than the air. This is why cars up here have plugs hanging out of the front grills.

yeah, it's *freezing* here. i hate it when my eyelashes freeze. so annoying.
