Cold Enough For Ya?

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.

Why don’t people say “Cold enough for ya?” when it’s really cold? They say the opposite when it’s really hot.

We do have a counter to the popular line “It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity,” but you don’t often hear people say, “It wouldn’t be so cold if it weren’t for the wind.”

Well, on Sunday, it wouldn’t be so cold if it weren’t for the wind. That’s the way it was on Saturday.

We were in Mount Carbon covering a fire and yeah, it was cold. But with the buildings and all the activity on the street, it didn’t feel nearly as windy. Some might disagree.

For a little bit during that activity, we took a break and went down to Sweet Arrow Lake to try and get some pics of Canada geese chilling on the freezing water.

Down there, there are no buildings and it was downright frigid.

Expect more of that today.

We fear by the end of this so-called thaw next week, the toes will only have just returned to their normal color before it gets cold again.
