how cold is it?

4 February, 2012

This last week, with temperatures hovering right around 5F/-15C, it has been uncomfortably cold.

It’s been so cold that people are freezing to death.

It’s been so cold that The Husband’s office has closed due to “inclement weather” and has asked employees to work from home instead of risking the cold outside.

It’s been so cold that, when I’m outside for more than a minute or two, I can’t breathe.  As in I need to start puffing on an inhaler.

It’s been so cold that the city of Warsaw has been burning large metal containers filled with coal along the main streets so that those stuck outside can attempt to warm up a little.

And it’s been so cold that the Warsaw Zoo had to move their meerkats into a specially heated pavilion.

Thankfully, our apartment here is heated.  I guess this just means that we’ll be inside hibernating until it gets warm again.
