She lives in cold country. They use special electricity that doesn't freeze.

celcius or fahrenheit? That's pretty chilly if you're working in old money.

The car said it was -9F this morning when taking Keryx to the Dr. It is now 6 above. I would love a high of 26. So quit your bitchin. And it has been cold like this for over a week.

Same to you! Did they ever figure out the electricity issues in your store?

Minifobette's teeth are fine, though she's going to look very buck-toothed until the permanent ones start emerging. My lab test came back completely normal (well, a smidgen low in chloride and ever-so-slightly high in glucose, but neither by any remarkable margin.) The neurologist's office didn't call me and I didn't think to call them before it was too late in the day, so who knows what their opinion on it is. I slept nearly seven hours last night, came back after dropping the kids off and slept another three, and I'm still yawning right now.

it got fixed early afternoon, we don't know why it happened. I went back in to work this afternoon to run the stuff I shoulda run this morning. it was firkin freezing in my usually toasty (with the door closed) office. On the plus side it was all overtime and I did something I didn't have to right before annual review time.... (I'd'a done it anyway, but can't hurt, right )

They must have fixed the lights by diverting power from the heater...

Fucking fuck fuck 5 degrees outside. Did I want to leave my electric blanket to come to work? No. But I did. I wonder how cold it will be when I leave in a couple hours? And with no car pre-heat like at home. I hate winter.

(Can I have a life, please? So that someday I can say "My day was freaking AWESOME"??????)

I have the spoor go outside and warm up the car 15 minutes before we have to leave. Maybe you could hire a neighbor kid or Toonces to warm up your car for you.

I warm up the car when I leave the house. It's leaving work at 1 a.m. when we're locked in until we all leave that's the problem.

Luckily, it's not too far home. Brr it was cold last night, but boy was I cozy in my bed and I slept great!

And, Toonces died a long time ago.

And my only neighbor boy is, like, 10.

But other than that, great idea! (Sorry, do you not have icons?)

8 degrees sounds cold for where you live, that's probably equal to 30 below up here.

How often foes it get that cold?
