So here I am in Des Moines, Iowa, where it is DAAAARK and COOOOOLD and WIIIIINDYYY. It's so cold out that when I stopped for dinner at Subway, I asked them to toast my sandwich! (Normally I don't bother.)

But before that, I drove across the northwestern corner of Missouri, and before that, I stopped to get gas in Kansas City, where regular was $1.59/gallon.

Before that, I had lunch in Emporia, Kansas. I was hungry before then, but I was also on the Kansas Turnpike, which has nothing but McDonald's.

Before that, of course, was when I woke up this morning in Oklahoma.

Current Mood: coldbackwards

Mmmmm, toasty!

Take it from me, KT, a cold weather denizen (temps are around 30F lately. And can get windy ... ) toasted sandwiches still aren't worth it even when it's cold out. Then they're hard and crunchy! Submarine sandwiches should be nice and tender and melt in your mouth! I don't get this toasting trend ...

Of course, WInnipeggers are a strange bunch, we routinely win 7-11s award for most Slurpees sold per capita (9 years in a row, apparently) - I believe this is North America-wide too! 10 months of the year, it's cold enough to kill penguins, the other 2: "let's eat snow!"

I remember being in Brimley, MI watching the children of Canadian tourists swimming in Lake Superior and declaring the water to be "nice." The water temperature couldn't have been more than 50 degrees.

I didn't have much time anyway. I got there after dark, and I had to leave early in the morning.

HOW COLD WAS IT! I was waiting for the punch line. "It was so cold that...the abominable snowman was warming his hands under the heat lamp."
