Damn, but winter is coming on fast. It's a mere 8 degrees outside right now, and not much warmer inside since the heating has gone off. When I spoke to the repairman two weeks ago (while it was still warm) he said something about the end of the month, and I left it at that because it was basically Warm Enough. Damn.

I have to go for a walk to warm up a little, get the blood flowing again. I shall wear my big thick Canadian winter coat, for the first time this season.

Two down, twenty-eight to go.

Updated for a crisis report: the repairman is scheduled (he's fitting me in while installing kitchen appliances for a woman upstairs) for next Friday, the 10th of November. This may cause certain difficulties, or an enormous electricity bill, or both.

It was -0.5C this morning, as I scraped the frost off my car!

But it's turned out to be a beautiful, crisp, sunny autumn day.

The temp's been dropping here too. I hate having to scrape the car in the morning and night. Yuck. I like winter, but you always need to account for more time.

Hope the electrician fixes everything quickly and inexpensively.

Wow. Well I hope the stove and oven work so you can at least make hot meals! And also, that would mean you have some kind of heat source to cozy up to...

I am less than pleased with the coldness. Fortunately I enjoy scraping the car off so that's a good thing.
