Old is 3/4s of Cold

The TV weather folks say we are in the middle of the coldest East Tennessee weather in 10 to 20 years. We have been below freezing essentially for a week and another deeper freeze and snow are on the way from the north.

I have flaunted cold weather most of my life, saying I've never been TOO cold but I'm always TOO hot.

Well, I'm too cold now. I dread every trip to the woodshed. I dread walking the dogs. I dread warming up the Hooptie in the mornings.

When sweat is pouring off of me this summer, I hope I can remember how cold I am now.

I vow never again to scoff at winter vacations to Florida. Sign me up.
