….it was COLD!!
|bulletin remains in effect until 6:00 pm Thursday for La Crosse County, WI|
|…BITTER COLD WIND CHILLS ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON…
TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON WILL RANGE FROM THE SINGLE DIGITS TO TEENS BELOW ZERO. ALTHOUGH WIND HAS GENERALLY, REMAINED LIGHT, OCCASIONAL INCREASES IN WIND SPEED WILL LEAD TO SPORADIC WIND CHILL VALUES IN THE 20S TO LOWER 30S BELOW ZERO.
THESE WIND CHILLS CAN LEAD TO FROSTBITE IN AS LITTLE AS 30 MINUTES. AVOID BEING OUTSIDE FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME, BUT IF YOU MUST GO OUT, DRESS WARM AND IN LAYERS. MAKE SURE TO COVER ANY EXPOSED SKIN.
We upgraded to frostbite in 30 minutes compared to less than 5. One young lady in Iowa – washed her hair, bundled up, went outside and took the towel off while hanging her head down and then stood up straight. Her hair was also straight up in the air. Many videos of people with containers of hot water, throwing it in the air and it instantly turned to snow. Why would they make more snow? *sigh*
Wednesday and Thursday were brutal. I was stoking my wood stove every 90 minutes just to keep it 66* balmy degrees in the house. I got to snuggles for 2 days…..Yes, apparently she has some plugged tear ducts so we massage them…..she hates it. But Nonna hates that stuff on her beautiful face more.
I have a date Saturday evening. We are meeting at the Mexican Place in a town halfway between us. He’s 6’2″, 63 yrs old, looks a LOT younger (unlike my millionaire who, at 62, looks older) We talked on the phone last night an hour/20 minutes. It was nice. He sounds nice. Keeps slipping in about going back to his place Saturday night so we can keep our original coffee date for Sunday morning. LOL…………I teased him about this. He laughed…
Funny tho……..how at my age now, do we really need to do that dance? If we want, we want and hopefully it will work out. I KNOW how short life can be. Do I want to waste time playing coy for too long?
Any thoughts anyone?
