today's high was -7.
i'm guessing the wind was blowing at least twenty miles an hour. maybe more. low tonight is supposed to be -15, with wind chills of at least -40.
i bundled up to take out the trash and almost died. it's brutal. and breaking some records. the furnace never shuts off, and the house is creaking and popping.
i am so glad i have julia buckley's ARC to read. delightful, and funny as hell.
frequent flyer miles....
i love frequent flyer miles. yes, they're impossible to use over holidays, but most of my plane tickets have been purchased with frequent flyer miles. that means i've flown to oregon for free. to boise for free. to georgia for free more than once. florida for free twice. 3 free trips to iowa. well, not FREE. there's a ten dollar charge. 60 bucks if you don't purchase the ticket 3 weeks in advance. i just got a new credit card that is free for one year. it gave me 20,000 miles right off. that's almost one round trip already.
i've never been a coupon clipper, but i love frequent flyer miles.
