Yesterday morning was one of the coldest morning for the area where I live. Worked on a metal key box combination because I needed some master keys for our Community pool storage rooms and take some measurements and inspect some other things that we may have to replace or add for next Summer. As the president of my HOA I needed to verify some works done previously.
While handling the locks and keys my fingertips were so cold that I was losing sense of touch. Then pain ensued and had to run to the car because I couldn’t feel my fingers anymore. It was many years that I didn’t feel that kind of intense cold. Good thing that I could finish my inspection and took the measurements I needed.
I returned home and I was so relieved of the pain once I warmed up and had a cup of hot coffee.
Being so bitterly cold did not deterred the birds from coming to my feeders, in fact I saw more birds than usual. That’s good!
