Holy ****ing crap it is cold out...

Postby Bri » Mon Dec 13, 2010 6:21 pm

26 degrees Fahrenheit and falling, last I checked.

Plus snow flurries (although to be fair, we aren't getting slammed with snow like the Midwest (we got ours in February anyways)). I dislike cold intensely.

Yeah... They cancelled school today because of poor weather, so that is one less day for us to do our finals. D:

Aaand... Tomorrow is already delayed. T_T

It was windy as hell earlier when I was out getting a Christmas Tree. Probably got a tree a little more prickly then I'd prefer (got a Spruce this year), because it was so damn cold out, I didn't want to take the time to find a Dougles Fir with the same shape.

its 24 F right now, and still dropping. Snow looks to be done for the day tho

I've never had a real tree, we've always used fake.. are they hard to maintain or expensive or anything?

Mainly they require a tray full of water and some plant food; the thing I hate about real trees is that they shed needles like crazy and they're hell to vacuum up. I have a Douglas Fir (fake one) that I have yet to set up, but plan to by Friday.

They can be a pain to clean, but as far as I'm concerned, totally worth it. I had them as a child, and loved them (they smell great), but then one year we got sick. By the time the family was better, it was 3 days before Christmas, and all the good live trees were gone, so we caved, got a fake tree, and have had to deal with them ever since.

Flash forward to last year: I'm on my own (or well, living with my g/f in our own apartment, but I'm away from home), so i decide its back to the real tree!

I always worry about lights on a real tree catching on fire. D:

To my knowledge, the lights are designed not to burn that hot. Still happens I suppose, but especially with the new LED lights that all the stores seem to sell now (which lack some of the "warmth" of the older lights, but I digress), tree fires are (i believe) much less likely. They don't run as hot, or use as much electricity.

It snowed today. Still is snowing. Estimates are no more than an inch or two, but it's still fucking cold. And the fact that I have no curtains doesn't help.

I've got an appointment to get evaluated for them next week; they're going to measure and show me samples so I can choose the right curtains, and then they'll custom make them and install them. Costs more, but I think it's worth it.

It hasn't been that cold the past few days.

I will say though that seeing the snow on the grounds is still somewhat of a pretty effect, but I'm sure that will go away as it melts.

Although we are supposed to get another storm system coming through on Tuesday/Wednesday, so I don't know.

I want it to snow and for a week of school to be cancelled :D

I am feeling overwhelmed for some reason.. Probably because I am taking 6 days of classes and all of them give so much freaking homework....
