The bad news: in the six days since I’ve arrived, I’ve only left the cabin once. I know. It’s shocking. Especially since I didn’t actually count the days until a few sentences ago. :-/
In my defense, it’s been ridiculously cold. The mountain temperature hasn’t gotten up to zero in days. Yesterday, I brushed the snow off my car yesterday and drove down to the grocery store. The temperature read negative eight at the cabin. I lost feeling in my fingertips, even though I wore gloves and had the heat blasting. To make sure I kept all of them, I bought some handwarmers at the grocery store before driving up.
Apparently, last night, it got down to negative 20. Getting out of bed was tough. I made a fire, which started out really well.
Ten minutes later, it didn’t look so hot. 🙁
