We've been holding out. We ignored that our feet felt like ice and covered them with wool socks. We layered our clothes and I broke out my woolen fingerless mitts.
We drank lots of hot tea. I baked bread and roasted chicken in the oven.
We even ignored the tiny snowflakes falling from the sky and the fact that the hose for the dogs' water had frozen.
But when we woke up and saw our breath, we had to cave.
We turned on the heat in the kitchen.
