Freezing Cold

After living in the cold for the last four years, I consider myself to be pretty well adjusted to cold weather. That is, until this last week. This week I experienced the coldest days of my life! After 4 days of temperatures ranging from -20 to -30 degrees, I have officially had my fill of winters outside of Arizona. The week was full of excitement as we began each day with a 20 minute collaborative effort of jump-starting my car due to the cold. Once we both got our cars running and out of the snow-filled parking lot, we had to deal with the pain of parking and walking to our classes in the unbearable cold. After one day of not wearing gloves, I'm pretty sure I developed a mild case of frostbite. The good news is that today warmed up to a balmy 16 degrees. After this last week of pure winter bliss, I think it's pretty safe to say that we're ready for an Arizona winter!

I just had a memory of winter in Flagstaff. I don't know if you remember but I was ready extra early for school so I could go out and scrape the snow off my car and get it warmed up and ended up locking my keys in my car while it was running in the process. IDIOT! Luckily you came driving up about 30 minutes later to let me in the apartment so I could get my spare key. All my keys were in that car. I remember it was running on fumes too cuz I hated getting gas in the snow. Man I don't miss that at all.
