Feels Like...

Wow it's cold outside! I subbed today, and from my car to the building my eyes would not stop watering. I crossed the parking lot and got to the side of the school as fast as possible in hopes to block some of the wind. Little did I know, it would get much colder by the time I would leave at the end of the day.

My car was on E, so I stopped at the gas station and struggled to shut my door when I got out. The wind was so fierce I had to use all my strength. And thanks to Myth Busters I know it is smart to touch a metal part of the car with a bare hand before getting near the gas in order to discharge any electricity and prevent starting a fire. In less than 5 seconds of having my hand out of my glove it was numb. I couldn't believe how cold it was. I thought about standing outside so not to get more static electricity, but there was no chance I could have survived that cold.

So the first thing I do when I get home...check www.weather.com. My car was registering -13 outside, but I really wanted to know what the wind chill is at, and the wind is blowing much harder than usual. The wind is at 33mph and with the wind chill it feels like -44! Yikes! I'm not surprised to see it that low, 'cause it sure feels that way.

Yesterday I was lazy and didn't go work out, decided I'd wait 'til today. I am sure sorry I did that. So Tim and I will go work out after dinner, then go coach the K-1st wrestling team, then go to the varsity wrestling match. While we're out doing that it should be around -20 with the wind chill making it feel like -50. I'm not looking forward to that.
