Cold as a Witch's ...

Ah yes, another Hankism - cold as a witches tit! That about describes the weather here in the greenest land in the home of the free! Who sent that Alberta Clipper down? Please take it back. I swear my blood has thinned out and this cold weather is awful.

Let me tell you something about heat pumps. They are really pretty efficient, but the air they blow is cool. My desk in my office straddles the air duct and even though I have a deflector on it, I still get that cold air blown on me while it is doing this frigid thing outside. I might have to crochet leg warmers!

Maybe I'll crank up the fireplace later.


  1. Cold as a witch's tit in a brass bra. I once heard him say the full expression that way.

  2. I think he reserved that for the really cold days!
