Chillin' at Home

January 6th, 2014 at 12:05 pm

I say chillin' because it's chilly. I am bundled up, but the cold is seeping in.

Work was cancelled today -- practically everything in this area is closed. The temperature is in the double digits below zero -- and that's not the wind chill. It's real. I do not intend to step outside today.

I would probably be warmer if I had taken out my air conditioners when I should have. Now it's too cold to even mess with it. When the temps come up again, I'll call my son and get it done.

I got my claim code for $50 on Amazon from MyPoints. That's my second snowflake of the year.

I am leaving my oven on all day because the kitchen is freezing. Every once in a while I bake something. This morning I made mushroom rolls; then later on I made corn muffins. In a while I'll make escalloped potatoes. It's kind of like having an Aga! I will have a bigger gas bill this month, but I need the extra heat.

I watched Downton Abbey this morning on Xfinity, having completely forgotten about the new season starting last night. I will really enjoy having that to look forward to again!

I don't know if work will be called off again tomorrow, but even if the college reopens, I won't go back until the temperature normalizes. I can't make a six-block walk in weather like this.

I got my car parked in one of the downtown garages yesterday. That's a relief. I don't have to worry about moving it for the snowplows. It's free until tomorrow night at midnight. Since the snow has stopped, I should be able to park it tomorrow evening with no problem.

    My work associate is heading to your neck of the woods today! Told him to make sure he dressed in layers!

    We're home again tomorrow too (both parochial school and high school have cancelled). It is awful out there!

    Loved Downton Abbey last night! Looks like it will be an interesting season!

    It definitely isn't a day to be outside. We got a call that schools are closed tomorrow as well. I too enjoyed Downton Abbey last night! I think many of us will have large utility bills next month with this very cold weather. Darn.

    We are in the extreme cold downstate too. I know many schools are calling off school and right now parts of our city (and state) are having power outages. Hope you stay warm. Can you block the cold air from the a/c by putting blankets or something over them?

    I love downtown abbey, too but could not stay up late enough to watch beyond the first 30 minutes and i was falling asleep so i missed a bit. People at work are talking about it and I keep saying don't tell me!!

    Stay warm however you can but is your stove gas? Keep checkig the pilot light stays lit!

    I watched the very first episode on Netflix, but had trouble following it. Does it get easier to follow?

  7. CB in the City Says:

    Well, there are a lot of subplots and you have to get to know the characters. But once you're hooked you're hooked!

    I would guess the first episode introduced lots of characters. I'd watch another Petunia...it is a huge hit among many!
