Frozen..And I Don't Mean The Movie
A no pic post...an usual occurrence at the Pines! Frankly, how to you photograph cold? I can tell you it's super freezing here. Yesterday the wind chills made it about 30 below zero. This morning it was 13 below...getting warmer? I'm looking forward to tomorrow's temps...it's actually going to be 20de! Flip flops here we come! (just kidding) I give super hero awards to all police, fire, city workers, and anyone who has to work outdoors. I give hero awards to our surgical department workers. Those who made it to work on time..those who had to fight with the airlines to get home from a Christmas vacation...those who have a long drive to get to Ashland...and a special award to hubbies who drive and drop off their wives at the door so
me they don't have to walk the 1/4mi from the parking lot to the hospital and freeze to death! Jack closed down early yesterday and today after many cancellations because of the weather. Our surgical patients, however, made it in. With a few exceptions. Any cancellations we had were due to issues other than the weather. Hopefully all will be better as the week goes on. I had to post about these temps because I use this blog as a journal. It hasn't been this cold in 100 years. I'm thinking I probably won't be here in another 100yrs so maybe who ever gets this blog book in the will is going to love reading about the "BIG FREEZE" of 2014. The usual good-byes in this weather are as follows: Stay safe, stay warm..I've heard it and read it many times since most of my blog buddies live where it's cold..or they live south and are having a very unusual cold spell. Then there's Australia where they are having a crazy heat wave....Mother Nature, you are such a kidder! Stay safe, stay warm everyone....
