Sinclaire Sparkman: The hunt for heat
I live in an older house with no central heating unit, so when it gets cold outside it is up to layers, blankets and space heaters to stay warm. And I’m also one of those weird people that doesn’t mind the cold too much. I actually look forward to the time when the Earth tilts away from the sun to provide a respite from the heat, but I still found myself going through great lengths to stave off the shivers this past week. I’ve heard that if it comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb, so maybe we’ll have another 74 degree Christmas Day in 2018, but at least it has only been the temperature and we’re spared for now the inevitable snowfall that throws the South into chaos. Though we did see some flurries on Thursday and I may have spied a few on Christmas Eve, we have yet to have anything worth rushing to the store to stock up on milk and bread.
