THE BITING COLD

I looked at my weather app a second time to be sure I was seeing the number correctly. It read '-8'. In Celsius. I switched over to the weather in Ennis where my husband lives. Though he was six hours ahead of my current location the temperature in his city was 11 Celsius.

I remember the times I used to go to Ennis in November and December. I remember how cold it was walking around in 4 degree Celsius weather with the wind blowing from time to time. A biting cold where one wished to simply stay indoors under the covers and not emerge until the summer.

But the temperatures are expected to heat up by next week. From -8C to 25C in a matter of two days. Truly strange this weather. Regardless I enjoy my time indoors. Away from the biting cold of winter.
