The cold snap we are experiencing is chilling the bones of lifetime desert rats like me.
I have on three layers of clothing, including a hoodie to warm my little ears.
I have my heater cranked up at home and in my truck.
I keep my fleece-lined bomber jacket on at work.
People who are used to cold climates must think I’m a wimp.
I went to Fry’s in the Foothills and I saw a man pushing 80 years old who was in shorts!
Another woman was driving on Fortuna with her convertible’s roof down.
And on the drive to work yesterday I saw a young guy in a tank top walking down Arizona Avenue as if we were in the middle of summer.
These people are tough. But I wonder if they become the wimps in the Yuma summer.
Wimp or not, I’m keeping my flannel and fleece handy.
