Global Warming????

On my way home from a drug dinner - ok, that didn’t sound good - let’s try that again. I went to a dinner & lecture sponsored by a pharmaceutical company on subcutaneous rehydration using recombinant hyaluronidase in pediatric patients. There, that sounds better! The dinner was at the Latin King and was delicious. Anyway, on my way home, I swung by the bank to take a quick picture of the temperature, since it was so unbelievably cold that all of the metro schools were closed for the day. Yes, I stayed in the car to take the picture - it was so cold that it hurt to be outside. The bank sign said -1 degrees, but when I got home, it was actually -17 degrees (not counting wind chill). I’m guessing that perhaps the sign didn’t have room for 2 negative digits. So much for global warming!

  1. OMG!! I can't imagine it being that cold on a regular basis. I don't think I would handle that too well! I feel for you!

  2. I enjoyed the wordy description of where you were and even understood parts! However, the first way was fun too because you sounded like Karen--Will & Grace and that makes me giggle!

    The extreme weather makes you tough. Today's whopping 18 degrees feels like a heat wave now! :)

  3. I "know" you from Scrapgirls...I had forgotten you are from Iowa also. We're your neighbors up in Ames!:)
