for your viewing pleasure,
What I Wore Today:
First layer: underwear
Second layer: synthetic tank top, woolly tights
Third layer: New Girl dress
Fourth layer: polar fleece pants, polar fleece jacket
Outer wear: woolly scarf, fleece hat, furry mittens, furry boots, down coat with hood.
Accessories: black belt, basket woven earrings from Rwanda, frosty eyelashes.
Yes, it was so cold this morning that my eyelashes froze together during my 10 minute walk to work. It was -29C (what's that, like -237428.34F??? I don't know the imperial system.), and -39C with the wind chill. But don't worry: it's going up to -21C by this afternoon!....and then down to -42C tonight...
I thought I would wait outside the back entrance at work until someone came along to take a full-body of photo of me looking like a tick about to explode, but standing still for more than 10 seconds was too much for me. I grabbed this quick iPhone selfie.
BTW, I know that this isn't really cold for some of you (I'm looking at you, Heather), and I've been much colder before (-52C at the top of the Rocky Mountains in January), but the heat also went kaput at work this morning, so it's a double whammy.
Send thermals. Quickly.
