Ok, I fully realize what season we’re in but, holy shit it’s cold out there! Especially past my warmth of our living room door. Even the dog is not interested in staying outside any longer then she has to, and she’s a Labrador Retriever.
During these early days of February one can expect long, cold and cloudy days. You completely understand what the temperature actually feels like, even though your a bit fuzzy on how they actually achieve it, that little confusing thing they call the Wind Chill Factor.
Just a days ago I was taking the dog outside in front of the house for one of her many bathroom breaks and I came across one of our neighbours walking by the house. The conversation was very quick BTW consisting of Wow, it’s not all that bad out now is it and his response was Not all that bad really. When I came back in I looked at the temp on the weather network and it said that it was -14 (C) and -24 with the wind chill!
I wouldn’t even think about taking any of my guitars outside. Not even if I wrapped the guitar up BEFORE I put it in it’s case, wrap a towel around that and have the car all toasty warm inside eagerly waiting our arrival!
So all we have to do is sit back and look at the calender, it’s almost summer now isn’t it? If that fails to warm up your hearts, you can always go out and get yourself some ruby slippers, out them and start clicking your heels together saying “There’s now place like summer … ”
Keep on Jammin’
