It is, in rough numbers, cold enough to freeze the balls of a brass monkey,* colder than a witch's tit,** below zero on the Archaic scale. In short, despite dressing for the weather, my face almost froze off just going to the car. I live here why?

How's everyone else holding up with the massive pan-continental storm/cold snap.


*That isn't actually an obscene reference to the gonads of a metallic simian. In the days of wooden ships and iron men, when the traditions of naval service included rum, sodomy, and the lash***, iron cannon balls for ready use were stored on a triangular brass frame, known as a brass monkey. In cold enough weather, the brass contracted more than the iron, and the balls "froze" off. That that this phrase sounded obscene, was entirely not coincidental.
**No clever hidden meaning there. Straight out crude. And probably anti-wiccan. I'll continue blogging after my being turned into a newt gets better****.
***Winston Churchill.
****Monty Python.

The cold isn't expected to hit us until tomorrow. It's a gross slushy mess right now, though.

In between, we're supposed to get a lot of rain, which should get rid of the snow, and will hopefully wash away the snow and slush before it turns to ice.

I have held several witche's tits, and they were all without exception pleasantly warm. I have not, however, ever felt up a well-digger's ass, which is reputed to have been just as cold.
