    It’s soooooo c-c-c-cold here that I thought I saw a penguin go waddling by!

    You tend to get cold just sitting there, not moving your body!

    When I stepped outside to get the paper yesterday morning, I took my coffee with me.
    It froze so fast the ice was still hot.

    6 a.m.: It’s only -25ºF in southern Saskatchewan, but the wind chill is -38. And it’s predicted to be +30F by Sunday…

    Their boss wouldn’t happen to be Ebeneezer Scrooge, would it?

    Usually the offices that I’ve worked in are sweating hot in the winter and freezing cold in the summer. I never knew how to dress.

    Reminds me of Nordic Tuesdays.

    I work in a nursing home. It’s always toasty in there.

    Unfortunately, both heating systems and insulation are designed for normal cold. Not this stuff. And both are probably 20 years old.

    OSHA has been weakened so much they don’t have the enforcement power of Barney Fife ! ! !

    The EPA is in a conspiracy with the NSA and IRS.

    Disconcerting when you travel to a part of the country with a different climate. I flew to the East Coast last winter and almost died from the heat in my “winter clothes”, so it’s not just offices with that problem.

    Takes me back (as most things do, nowadays). Having a little seniority at an office where we had been transferred, I chose a small room with an all-glass west wall because it had an outside door so I wouldn’t have to traipse in front of everyone for bathroom breaks, etc. In the winter, it was Freeze City. I had a little heater under my desk that I’d share with clients who sat at the corner of the desk near me. Also wore a top coat. This worked fine, except that from time to time all the electricity would blow our fuse, plus that of the office next to ours. And this was in Largo, FL, near St. Petersburg.
