We're setting record cold temperatures this winter all over the United States.
I don't know if any folks from the south read this blog but I thought they might need some tips from us northerners on how to keep warm when the air around you isn't. It must be so hard for people who shiver when it's forty degrees to navigate in snow and ice and to take the chill out of the bones after being outside in 20 degree weather. I know that they will instinctively pile on the clothing and stay near anything that is giving off heat but here's one little tip that really helps keep the heat in the body. Sure, it would be nice to keep the temperature set at eighty or more but most of us folks couldn't afford the fuel or electricity costs. So, here's my tip: tuck your pants into your socks. Yep, simple as that. It makes you look like George Washington but it really works. Instead of cool air around your ankles, you're nice and snug from hip to toe.
I'm six dozen years old now and I started this blogging seven years ago - wow! that went fast. I read that every cell in one's body replaces itself in the span of seven years so now I'm a completely different person. Somewhat.
I'm a mother of three sons, a mother-in-law of 3 women, a grandma of 7 and a wife married to Bing for almost 45 years. I love life on this Earth.
