Thank you for adding to my vocabulary. I am glad in such gelid weather you or anyone can function at all; I most certainly could not do so without much preparation and assistance. I hope the weather eases there.

It's been ages since I've seen the word 'gelid' used in conversation. You win the 'word of the day' prize! One of my life long friends was also my college English prof. He made me a much, much better writer and I cherished his friendship and tutelage.

It has been in double digit below zero night here now for a week. My car took right off this morning, but it groaned about starting this morning when it was 17 below.

Keep warm and stay safe. Happy New Year!

Now I know what gelid means!  Here's hoping that the less gelid weather we are having now in the Springs makes it across the pairies to you!

This post is poetic in its words and images. Sometimes, when the intellect is muzzy, it is in poetry we can express ourselves, I've found.

Re: CCT

No, I did not know that, but I am not surprised.  There certainly is a difference between peoples.

I thought I was chilled before I read your post today -

but the image of the broken mast and a ship stuck in an icy sea has added a layer of icy glaze... Brrrrr!  Nice work!

Did you know, Taps ,well it is only what I have read,but more folk die in Britain from the cold than in Russia. The reason is they do not wrap up warm enough in England. One can see men shivering in suits waiting for transport. Arthur my Brother grumbles at me very often for messing around outside on cold days. I wrap up well though and it is alright if one is working to keep the blood flowing, hopefully.
