I don't have any pictures to show you, so thought I'd post this pretty winter picture. Do you see how cold it looks? Well that's how it's feeling. The temperature this morning was 21*F (-6*C) with a wind chill of -1*F (-18*C). A little chilly. Tomorrow is supposed to be a little warmer though. Wind chill is only 10*F (-12*C). We are predicted to have a major snow storm on Friday and Saturday with 12 to 18 inches of snow. The only good thing about that is that I'm retired and don't have to go to work.
I had my oncologist appointment today. I was actually happy to go to see other people and talk to them. I was making good time when I heard what sounded like something hit the side of my car. I looked in the mirror, saw nothing and went on. A few minutes later the low tire pressure light went on. *sigh* I've had that happen before. I called Joe and told him to cancel his doctor's appointment because I thought I had a flat. When I pulled into the parking lot at the hospital I took a look at the tires and they all seemed OK.
It was really busy at the Cancer Center. It appeared that there weren't enough employees to take care of all the patients. I took a seat and waited for awhile. Then they called my name. I went up to the desk and the receptionist said they did not have a referral for me. My doctor's office had sent it over yesterday. I had to go outside to call them. The girl said she had sent it to over but it appears the Cancer Center had changed their ID number. When I gave my doctor's office the new number it went right through and I was taken in right away.
When I saw my doctor I told him I needed good news from him because of the car and the referral. So he gave me a good report. The only thing wrong is my weight. I gained 8 pounds in 2 weeks. So he is assuming my thyroid medicine needs to be tweaked again. Otherwise, all my levels were good.
The tires still looked OK when I got back to the parking lot, so I drove to my mechanic to have him look at them. I wasn't the only one there. Three people came in after me and said their low tire pressure light was on. Cold weather will do that to tires. If it hadn't been for the noise I heard, I wouldn't have even gone. But it was a good thing I did because there was an 8 inch roofing nail in the tire. They were able to remove it, patch the tire and reinflate it. I love those guys.

So that's what happens when I venture out and see other humans. Wonder what will happen when I go to the library tomorrow to renew my books. Hmm...
Now off to bed so I can get stuff done tomorrow.
And try to stay warm.
