:unsure-1:

its FREEZING!!! My flat has no heating, and its minus five outside according to mother. I am like wearing my ENTIRE wardrobe of clothes :laugh:

I dont usually suffer from the cold, so I know its a physical blip. I might be coming down with something, but its all right because I will sleep it off tonight since its not manifesting very quickly beyond a slight headache and cough which appeared out of nowhere today.

How is the weather where everyone else is :huh:

It's was so cold here on Friday and Saturday night. It was about 50!!! It might have even dipped into the 40's! I know you are laughing but that is to cold for Florida skin!!! The good thing is it isn't cold here but for just a few days. The ONLY good thing about cold is sitting around the fire at night!! What in the world do you do if you have no heat?? Won't you freeze???

It's currently 61 outside but grey and rainy. A cold front is supposed to come through on Wed and we'll be dipping into the 20s at night for a couple of nights with highs in the 50s during the day. Not bad yet. I'm waiting for the snow to start. I'm bound and determined to have a white Christmas.
Dave, is your whole building without heat right now? If so, please leave your faucets dripping to keep your pipes from freezing. They'll burst and then you'll be without water too. Trust me on this.....

That would be celsius. You're only 5 below freezing. Nothing to worry about. Your body will keep you warm. :ninja:

Just don't lick any metal poles.

You're a hoot. I hope you are keeping Jens warm. That little bird might not do well with the cold. I hope you feel better. Being sick is no fun and being sick with not enough hot water to sit in the tub and make it like a sauna is awful. I love hot water and my heater and my fireplace. I would die without them.

Jens has feathers :mellow: He's not even puffed up, which is what he does when he's cold. Dear me...the problem obviously lies with me...if it were anywhere near as cold as I feel, then Jens would be sleeping and puffed up...but he's wide awake and eating his mineral block...even Lauzon is hoping around

only I feel cold :angry::laugh:

Do you have heat yet? If not, you need to at least get an electric space heater and keep it in whichever room you're in.

Was -5 C here this morning and I was thinking, no way I'd want this without a heated house. Dave must be freezing.

Dont worry, your body will keep you warm :tongue0011:

:laugh:

I had my fire cleaned, and now I use it without worry of being gassed :blink:

Lauzon loves the warmth, Jens doesnt seem to even notice the tempriture difference :rolleyes:

Well I have been bundled up for our winter weather here, It was down in the 50's and rainy and I couldn't pull myself away from being bundled up in front of the fire....luckily the bad weather passed and its sunny and back in the 80's now! Did I mention I live in San Diego? See Amy, I told you that you should come visit....can't beat the weather!:cool:

I've already told the bf that I am going to visit you and warned him that I may drag him along! I just have to figure out a time. :laugh: It may snow here this weekend. :unsure-1:
