One nice thing about all of this cold weather compared to the summer heat is that it is much more comfortable sitting next to our fireplace than it would be in the middle of July. Though, don’t most of us sit by a roaring fire while we are camping at Shades when the thermometer is reading somewhere in the 90s? Why do so many people drink steaming hot coffee during the hottest times of the year? My grandma would have told you that “hot coffee cools down your body.” Yeah right, Granny. One thing is for certain, our air conditioners don’t usually break down this time of year. My wife always asks me, “Ray, why do you have your ceiling fan on in the middle of winter?” Just like the kid that eats all of the cookies and his mom asks him why, my reply is, “I don’t know.”So as we glare out our windows and look in awe at all of the beautiful winter wonderland that surrounds our warm and cozy homes, will we all be wondering if our cars will start in the morning? I use to jump up two or three times during the nighttime to start our cars, just so they would be ready to go in the morning. Nowadays, I can’t seem to pull myself out from under the warm covers long enough just to go to the bathroom.
