It is cold out there!

Hope everyone is keeping warm. I went out this morning and had to stop to pump gas into my car. Only put $15 in (way too cold to stand there any longer), and nearly froze!! I have never seen it this cold. I really need to get a scarf to wear on days like this…

    Dar, it is definitely cold outside! Yes, you do need a scarf on days like today. Do you use anything to cover up your nose/mouth when you go outside in the cold? Follow our  when braving the cold.

    Oh, yes, please do wear a scarf when it is so COLD out!  I have to wear my mask and a scarf over it for it to help at all when it's so cold.  

    The best thing I have found, well PLJOHNS heard about it and mentioned it on these forums, is a heated scarf.  It is marvelous!  I still wear my mask underneath it.

    I usually forget to bring something with me. I start my car from inside the house so I think I will be fine. But just going from the house to the car, or the car to wherever….it takes my breath away. I hate coughing so much because people think I have something catching. I was thinking of going to the gym and just do my own thing (no hour long classes), but not really wanting to go there hacking all over the place. There was a bad flu going around here this winter, so people are not liking people coughing all over the place.

    Dar, you are right, there are a lot of viruses and the flu going around right now. I hope you are able to spend some time at the gym!

    I didn’t make it last night. I was feeling really bad in the afternoon. I couldn’t warm up after I came home from my doctor appointment. So I went to bed because I was finally sleepy! I slept so good until around 2am when I had a coughing fit. Didn’t go back to sleep until around 7am, so I missed the gym class I wanted to go to. SO, tomorrow! No excuses! 9am I have a kickboxing class and I will go. Hopefully I get a good nights sleep tonight. I feel much better today.

    Glad you are feeling better today! That stinks that you woke up in the middle of the night coughing! That is rough! Hopefully, tonight is better!

    Dar, glad you're doing better! And thumbs up for the motivation to stay active!

    I hope everybody is safe and warm with their scarves

    Dar, hoping you're continuing to getting some rest and that now you're sleeping through the night!

    I am back at work. They are short staffed so had to go back early. BUT, I had the best sleep two nights ago. Last night I was tossing and turning until about 3am…but I think tonight will be ok. Going for an hour long massage tomorrow morning at 10:30 am. Can’t wait! Hope everyone is doing well and staying warm.

    We are under an Ice Storm Warning through noon on Thursday.  Expecting from 1/4 – 1/2 inch of ice accumulation.  Almost all schools have already canceled classes for tomorrow.  Supposed to increase overnight and then some snow on top of it in the morning.  High tomorrow in the upper teens and low tomorrow night in the single digits but maybe up in the 30s by this weekend!

    We are getting freezing rain tomorrow morning, but then turning into rain by noon. I don’t get this weather. We had more rain than anything. Then it is crazy cold but then very mild. Just can’t wait until June! Lol

    Dar007,  Hope the freezing rain doesn't materialize for your area!  

    We didn't get as much ice overnight as they were predicting but got more sleet so the roads are still slick.  Thankfully a lady from my pulmo's office just called and said my Dr has canceled all appointments today!  Whew!  She said no one is going in to the office even.  She is working from home and someone will call me tomorrow to reschedule. 

    It's only in the low teens today with wind chills below zero so I may just stay home and do errands tomorrow.  Sure has been a "wintry" winter this year!

    Wow, Lisa that is great you don’t have to go out in that mess. I will be surprised if I don’t get a call to come in for a double shift tomorrow because of the freezing rain. All our storms so far, I had to go in because a certain few “don’t drive when it rains or snows”. Which sucks for those of us who are left to work and drive in them every time! It is the job. Hospitals don’t close. Anyway, I don’t find it fair. Ok. Enough of that. lol Summer is almost here. Good positive thought.

    On a positive note,  I had a great massage today!!! It was exactly what i needed. I go once a month and don’t realize how tense I am. Glad I got the session in before the ice storm tomorrow.

    Dar007,  Oh, that's wonderful your massage helps so much!  Summer is getting closer and the daylight hours are increasing each day!  

  • Melissa G

    Dar, glad the massage helped you! 

    It is really cold and windy here today! Good thing we don't have to go out today!
