1. one should never underestimate the importance of allowing his/her car to warm up. let's just say i didn't do this, and my brakes froze. by the grace of God, i went a different way to work and was able to avoid having a very bad day.
2. driving up and down a mountain in the snow and ice is not a very good idea.
3. i am not cut out to live any more north than nashvegas. i'm too much of a wuss. i take humidity over -1 degree weather any day of the week.
4. i absolutely HATE extremes! 1 degree weather is a bit ridiculous. so is 100 degree weather. often times extremes get us in trouble. balance is so important!
