-4 this morning. In Virginia for fucks sake. It's way way colder than normal. One of the lines to the outdoor filter system for my 150 gallon fish tank froze and blew up into 3 pieces. I'm not quite panicking, not quite. I stopped the system from overflowing my tank and dumping the water on the floor.
This sucks.

Help me. :-(

Let's say something all the old people say:

It's not the cold itself...

*come on, all together*

...It's the humidity!!!

Thank god, despite being right next to the ocean, our air is dry as fuck. Really makes the -40s more bearable. But its been unnaturally warm up here lately. Maybe its all following the magnetic pole off to the side. shrug

FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!
My stuff all froze. I had insulated the tiny bathroom of my workspace downtown with sheets of styrofoam insulation. Ceiling, walls, doors, everything. I share the water lines with a neighbor. Toilet froze, water filter froze, sink froze, drains froze, water lines froze. I cut the water lines and ran new stuff for my neighbor so that all of his lines are inside of his warm space. I will just have to do without for now. I can't keep my space heated all the time like he does. :-( I are sad. And tired.

You should eat nabe (I think it’s hotpot in english) or miso soup. It won’t fix anything but it’s warm and it can make you happy meow

PS: I hope you and your fishes don’t freeze to death. Especially the fishes.

Wow, a terrible update... Can't you snuggle up somewhere warmer and let the fishes to your neighbor? So you both don't freeze :-(

I was happy because today it's warmer, but I'm freezing my ass in a library located in a church... Outside is warmer than inside

"you say that now, until you see weeks straight of 90+ degrees with 100% humidity.. then you'll be begging for a proper winter"

It gets that hot here anyway, and it's probably 110+ plus in the building where I work...so, I'd be fine.
