Christmas was a real toned down affair. In fact because of my sisters situation with her husband we did nothing. Arlene and I essentially just went out dinner, went back to her house and killed a bottle of wine. In a way it was refreshing not having to deal with shopping. Did I mention that as I write this it's FRIKKIN' COLD! Seven degrees as I write this not counting the "wind chill" factor.
On Mt. Washington in New Hampshire (12-28-2017) it was 34 degrees below 0 with winds of 100 miles an hour. In the video clip this guy went outside of the Mt. Washington Observatory with boiling water and watched it instantly turn to snow.
I could never go into Boston for the First Night celebration particularly with weather like this. I don't know how people do it? There could be, depending on the weather, anywhere from 300,000 to 1,000,000 people in town.
I can now rest a little easier as the temperature has risen to 8. Anyway I hope everybody has had a nice Christmas or whatever you celebrate. It's time for me to get my act together and actually do something productive. I'll visit around and see if I can get Arlene to invite me over for supper. Hey it's worth a shot.
I'm outta here.
