- Outside is about the same temperature as your freezer.
- Cold registers as pain.
- Any exposed skin burns.
- You will do ANYTHING not to be outside.
- Your car doesn't want to start.
- The steering wheel is still an ice cube even though the heater has been on for 15 minutes.
- Locks are tough to open and close.
- Your pants offer no protection from the wind.
- Your fingers and toes go numb in the 5 minutes you spend waiting for the bus.
- That calf-length down parka seems like a great investment.
- If you are foolish enough to try to run, it will be hard to breathe.
- Your lungs will burn.
- Every part of your face that secretes liquid will.
- And then it will freeze.
- The water in your water bottle will freeze.
- When you come back inside, your legs will turn red and burn as blood flow returns to your skin.
- You can't believe you ever complained about being hot- except on the bus, which is really hot when you are wearing 5 layers, at least two made out of animal byproducts, and the bus driver is in shirtsleeves.
- You hate everyone who wanted it to snow and be cold.
- You count the days until you can move back south.

I work out:
60 minute vinyasa yoga class
Moses comes back to Egypt to rescue the Israelites. Pharaoh is a punk.
