Wimping Out

The record cold in the region has altered my work schedule. As stated before I was on a special project working cold cases. I had a hunch a few coworkers would not show up. I dressed for interviews and took the early bus. I got the call about an emergency. I told the chief that I can convert my office back for interviews in under ten minutes and toss on a tie.

For the record about extreme cold.

1) wear two pairs of dress socks under sweat socks.
2) wear gloves seriously
3) Cover head with a hood
4) Turn face away from wind
5) minimize bus waits by knowing the schedule
6) stop at stores along the way to buy items. The ten minutes out of the elements makes a difference.
7) Keep moving
8) go to the bathroom right before leaving home or work
9) If possible skip shaving
10) wrap face in scarf.

What record cold? It's in the 20's.

In NYC Tuesday morning when I left was 4 degrees with a 40 mph wind.
Yesterday was 8 with a 20 mph wind.
Think it is a balmy 18 and no wind.

If I weren't so sick, I would have been outside in the brutal cold that had a couple of days ago. I actually like cold weather! Freezes germs!
