A chill in the air


Well. What a difference a day makes.

Two days ago, we hit a high of 87 degrees, and I was loving life. Yesterday, Austin experienced a record-breaking temperature drop of 56 degrees in 24 hours. Today, our high was 37.

My massage yesterday got canceled, because the massage therapist works out of her unheated garage. Big bummer.

Then today, my hosts had a prescheduled (from weeks ago) appointment with HVAC workers to completely overhaul both their heating and air conditioning systems, so between 8 am and about 6 pm today, we had no heat inside. I didn’t have a thermometer, but I was definitely in hibernation mode for most of the day, shivering under a blanket in my room and doing very little. Thankfully, the newly installed heating system does seem to be working now, so I’m feeling much more comfortable.

Also meanwhile, Russia has invaded Ukraine. I’m not knowledgeable enough on the topic to say anything very coherent at this point, but I think it’s safe to say this is quite ominous and concerning.

So… sorry I don’t have any more fun outdoor travel photos right now. Realistically, based on the forecast, I may not have enough to blog about for the next couple of days. On Sunday, when it should warm up a bit, I will be hopping on the train to San Antonio. I do have some cool stuff planned for my time there.

So if you don’t hear from me for a few days, please know that I am probably safe and sound and cozy indoors. I hope the same is true for all of you; I know that Texas is not the only place having a cold snap right now!
