The winter weather blew in last night, and all of us in North Carolina woke up freezing this morning. I’m not kidding; it’s cold! You’d think I’d be used to chilly weather, but I’m a June baby. I’m just not built for cool temps. My hands and feet are like ice cubes from October through March.
Instead of going to church today, I’m in hibernation mode, praying the power doesn’t go out. Our fireplace needs some repairs – and I can’t imagine being without heat right now. My teeth start chattering just thinking about it.
You couldn’t pay me to go outside in this mess, but poor Brandon has already braved the freezing rain to take the dogs out this morning. When he came back in, he announced it was cold as balls outside. I’ve always wondered where that saying comes from. I think it might be a shortened version of it’s cold enough to freeze the balls off of a brass monkey.
Ever since Brandon came back in, I’ve had a bunch of different ways of describing how chilly it is floating around in my head. I figured since it’s freezing, y’all might get some good use out of them today.
