How many degrees

How many degrees is it outside this morning? Well below freezing. I look at the hourly forecasts, trying to find an hour when it might be warm enough for a walk outside. Maybe by 9 or 10 AM the temperature will be above freezing. So different from walking in the summer, when you have to get out before dawn to avoid heat stroke.

  1. After working so hard, she earned a B.S. in History, a Phi Beta Kappa award, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. Then she got a Masters in Education. After 3 years, she earned a Ph.D in History and wanted more. Though very proud, her folks asked “How many degrees do you need?”

  2. Claire says:

    She heard him coming down the stairs as she nursed her morning cup of coffee.
    “How many degrees is it this morning, hon?”
    “I just heard the radio announcer say it was four degrees Fahrenheit, but the wind chill factor makes it feel as if it were 14 degrees below zero.”
    “Wow! Guess I better let the car warm up a bit before heading out this morning. Yesterday I had to deal with the thick fog and today it’s the slippery roads.”
    “It’s been a harsh winter, so far, and if it’s not one thing it’s another,” she said with a sigh of resignation. “Just be careful out there.”

  3. It was freezing cold days make me wanted to go back to the Keys, but that is not possible anymore. The blood on my hands has made sure of that, why couldn’t Samuel mind his own business, I told him to stay away. Now I’m stuck in this hellhole, just a another face in the crowd.
