THE COLD SNAP FROM HELL!


Really don’t like cold snaps!

Why does winter sound so horribly eerie.

The moaning wind. The crackling of snow. The rattling of hot pipes. And the squealing of tires trying to free themselves of ice.

But the real chilling sound is the silence. The desolation that falls over the snow. It’s so quiet maybe for a mere moment or two. Then the chaos of sound crashes once more. And it’s worse now because one can’t tell which is what or where it is coming from.

The worst part of the cold snap? Adulting!

Trying to achieve minuscule things while expending massive amount of energy to keep warm!

The whole apartment building is a freezer box. An ugly block of ice! I had to keep leaving the comfort of my suite to go do laundry. I stick my key in the door to the laundry room. It got stuck. Wouldn’t unlock the door. No uniform.

I return to my suite, it has gotten colder. I make calls to property management about laundry and no one came.

Whatever.

I don’t want to leave the comfort of my blankets. I buried myself in my bed. Teeth chattering until heat soaked into my bones. Bliss.

My thermostat is on full blast. My heater in the living room is turned on high, my bedroom heater is on medium. Yet the bedroom is the warmest room in the apartment. Ugh drafts.

I am going to go to sleep now.
