Hey, at least it rhymes

The sky's a sick ocean of white
Warm weather remains out of sight
If hot chocolate was free
I would soon have to pee
'Cuz the vortex is polar tonight

Winter has dropped to my toes
(Still wiggling despite being froze!)
I can barely inhale
Without turning quite pale
As the ice-boogers tickle my nose

In bitter cold weather like this, the last thing you want is for your furnace to break down.

So imagine my dismay when I woke up and the temperature (indoors!) was only 46 degrees.

In the past, when it's done this, I've been able to re-start it by flipping the circuit breaker off, waiting awhile, then turning it back on again.

Alas, this time it did not work, despite repeated tries.
Sooooo, I had to call someone to come fix it.

I have an electric furnace (instead of oil or gas), and it's kinda hard to find someone willing to fix those.

But I found a helpful repairman who came out right away, and happily I am now warm again.

Just in time, I might add, because the temperature is supposed to get down to 11 below zero tonight.
(That's not even counting wind chill).

Have a good weekend and stay safe.
I'll be in bed reading good books and watching DVD's with two cats yawning next to me and a ton of blankets pulled up to my chin.

Janna Dear....
Loved your Rhyme Thyme 55
We have missed you, I'm glad you are now safe and warm. It's just not the same here without you. Thanks for playing, you are like a warm tropical breeze, gently blowing against the sails. Have a Kick Ass Week-End

G-Man: Aww. :) Thank you for missing me!

Breathing hurts. I think Nature is telling us people should not live in places where it hurts to breath.

Janna said...

Alice: You're welcome! :)

Grace: Waaaaaay too cold out there!

OtherMary: Almost as if Nature is wishing we lived on another planet entirely...

I'm giving this poem a glance
But the temperature's making me dance
I'd best get inside
In front of the fire I'll hide
While I think about moving to France.

nonamedufus: Bad luck; I think France is cold this time of year too. Are there any tropical places that rhyme with "pants"?
