Oooh Boy it' cold!

Today, at 1pm here it was -20 degrees. I walked outside and within five minutes my skin was burning. There has been a large arctic blast of cold air from Minnesota and Wisconsin, where I live, extending to the Northeast. The worst seems to have been in Embarass, MInnesota, where the thermometers read -54 degrees! Geez, with this weather, one can only be happy that there is still a place to go with heat and a roof. I don't want to take anything for granted, just imagine having to live with no heating, or even worse, living like Adrien Brody in The Pianist. I think we would all wear a Nazi jacket if we were in his shoes. I think that is one of the reasons I am so fond of that movie, it really provides perspective. How can I be bothered by my petty problems, when I have all the necessities to survival? It seems as though we have many programs in us that just don't do us any good.
