But Wait!! There's More!
It's cold. I mean it's really friggin' cold. The thermometer reads 4 degrees and the wind is blowing at a good 20-30mph. The wind chill factor is around -20 degrees. As I sit in my cozy house bitching about the cold I can't help but think about our forefathers and how hard it must have been without the conveniences we have today. First of all.... indoor plumbing. Dear God - can you imagine having to bare your ass in an outhouse when it's this cold (or colder)? What about trying to toilet train a child? Or be a woman and have your period? Or God forbid have the diarrhea (or as Gary calls it....the Screamin' Twirlies)? An improvement would've been when they put the facilities in the barn with the rest of the animals. It had to have been a little warmer in there.
