I had that really poor class discussion.
I chaired a meeting and did a clumsy job. Bleargh.
After work, I went around to a couple stores in town trying to look at snowshoes. One store has a couple of this type, and says they're far superior. Another store has a lot of another type (from the same company), and has never heard of the other type. The other store doesn't carry snow shoes anymore.
It's evidently time to buy swimsuits, not snowshoes, this despite the fact that the wind chill took us well below zero today.
And when I got home, I got the final (second) notice that despite my digging and yesterday's apparent okayness, my mail box isn't accessible enough, so I need to pick up my mail at the post office.
It's so cold outside that it's just... cold.
I think to the future, and I can't imagine surviving here another nearly 20 winters until I might be able to retire.
