Oh my, a dusting of snow and a temperature of 11F/-12C.
It almost seemed like Winter.
The forecast is for more cold.
A co-worker came up to me before work, put her hand on my shoulder, and with what appeared genuine amazement said, "You were right? If you dress for it, it's not bad." She is one who seemed in the past more interested in fashion than function in matters of dress. It turns out, as a native St. Louisan, she just didn't have a clue. Now she does.
Today was another co-worker's first day back to work since before the Holidays. She brought me a gift. It was completely unexpected. She told me her son was looking on ebay. He called her in and said, "Look Mom, this will keep me warm at the bus stop." She agreed and got one for him. While she was at it she got one for me.
Truth be told, I have sundry masks and neck tubes, but I have none which mean as much to me. I was very touched by her gesture. I tried it out on the walk the car after work. It did the job and it improves my looks. It was a refreshing 9F/-13C for my evening stroll.
