Well, this morning was the coldest morning, thus far, that I've had to endure while doing public transportation. It wasn't all that bad, actually, as I'm in a warm bus, a warm train, or a warm shuttle van for probably at least 95% of the time! So, I can't complain. Tomorrow, though, is forecasted to be much, much colder. See the forecast below from Accuweather.

Thursday, Jan 15
High: 40 °F RealFeel®: 29 °F
Sunny most of the day, breezy and colder

Thursday Night, Jan 15
Low: 12 °F RealFeel®: 2 °F
Mainly clear and frigid

I believe their terminology "frigid" pretty much sums it up. It is frigid, for sure. My quest tonight, however, is to locate a hat in my closet that won't scrunch my hair. Yes, I'm gonna be vain even though I don't want to freeze to death!! I do believe I have a black felt hat of some sort that will certainly suffice.

Unfortunately the cold snap is going to be with us throughout the weekend. And that means we will be enduring some cold temps on Saturday during our annual field trip to the Birmingham Race Course. We take a group over every year about this time to tour the kennels and watch some races. This year we've got 90 folks going! Yep, it's the largest group in the history of SEGA. I hope everyone dresses warmly!!

Oh, I have to add that thanks to my Zune, I am back to having a stress free commute. Last night I loaded my new Lady Antebellum CD and listened to it on the way to work this morning. They write their own songs and music! What a talented trio they are. Truly talented!

There is also something very "warming" about listening to Jimmy Buffet when it's 20 degrees outside. It does put your mind in that tropical mode, you know? Beaches, margaritas, sun tan lotion, salt water - ah, just thinking of all that warms me up! :) Hey, don't laugh. Even if it actually doesn't warm me up, it certainly does put a smile on my face! Love that Jimmy Buffet!!

BTW the Zune is working fabulously!! Life couldn't be better! Pin It

I think you should post a picture of you and the hounds all bundled up.

Keep warm on Saturday.

Our weatherman ACTUALLY used the term "stupid" cold. Yes, that is an exact quote. Must be a technical term- describing weather so cold it makes you stupid. Stay warm.
If it helps, everyone can come to my house for margaritas to go with that Jimmy Buffet music. ;-)
