cold enough for you?

Okay, so it's officially butt dog cold. I have this smart alek (how the heck do you spell that?) profesor from up north who insists that this is not cold. Oh yeah? I'm sure we could put our heads together to come up with some tests which would elicit a quick confession that he's WRONGO BONGO. yankees...

anyway, cold weather means dead ants in the swaney yard (don and i have a competition to see who can hold out the longest without turning the heat on in the house so we can save money. He was wearing a parka while watching that Ed show, and I have a heating pad wrapped around my feet while I'm writing a paper. we're both fairly stubborn. if one sunday we don't show up at church, i suggest you send a posse out here armed with heat lamps and fire to thaw us out). and cold weather and dead ants in the swaney yard means HITCHCOCK!!! SO. I can see it now...hot cocoa, popcorn, a million quilts and mittens-- how fun does that sound????

so let's do it-- all who are in town, let's really make it happen this time. and the next night, we can all go to kevin's, because I am fairly certain that a cranium blowout involves being in a heated apartment.

later all--

here in greenville it is so cold too. I can't even imagine going to a school up north, even App State for that matter. It was about 37 degrees this morning and I could barely make the walk to class.

Blah blah blah! Welcome to the mountain life. Of course I dont know what its like not to have heat inside but I gotta say that the wind here makes it about twenty degrees colder!! Don't give in I'm confident you can hold out!!!

ha ha!! NO, the heat has STILL not been turned on, AND it's getting warmer this week, so we have a brief reprieve in the frostbite alert :). There has been NO discussion-- I repeat, NO DISCUSSION of caving....

Stay tuned for more updates!
