Arresting the cold . . .

As I write this, it is 14 degrees with a wind chill of -2.  I am closeted in my computer room and running a space heater.  This makes it the warmest room in the house. Fortunately, I don't have to go anywhere today.

I had to tell Matthew the following, in separate statements:
1. Long sleeves.
2. Sweatshirt over your shirt.
3. Hat and gloves.
4. Wait inside until the bus comes.

I would not be surprised if he was thinking, "Mom, will you please just shut up!"

People in Merrimack, New Hampshire and in Harlan, Kentucky (I have relatives living in the latter place) are also fed up with winter and are expressing their discontent in the following ways:

Merrimack has issued an arrest warrant for Old Man Winter. This follows on the heels of them also issuing an arrest warrant for the groundhog, "citing his failure to disclose that six more weeks of winter would consist of mountains of snow." (I wonder if the city of Lilburn, Georgia has grounds to arrest General Lee, the groundhog who lives at the Yellow River Game Ranch, because he predicted an early spring.)

Not to be outdone, the city of Harlan, Kentucky, has issued an arrest warrant for Elsa from the movie Frozen.

I'm not holding my breath that the authorities will be able to do find said miscreants and put them in jail.  I will just stay next to my space heater and ply myself with plenty of hot chocolate.

Just my .04, adjusted for inflation.
