eight degrees

November 16th, 2008

Eight degrees. That was the temperature inside just as the sun was rising over the Jundushan this morning. And with clouds coming down from the northwest, I’m not sure it’s going to be getting much warmer. The tap in the courtyard was frozen shut this morning, and the water still hasn’t come on- correction, turning on the tap produces a tiny, tiny dribble. I’m glad lzh got me that pair of padded-cotton shoes yesterday. I’m also thinking it won’t be such a bad thing to go back to our centrally heated apartment in Beijing. I’m also thinking that I’m going to wear a lot more when we come back at New Year.

    One of the boys in Class 5 told me that this winter is allegedly going to be very cold, even colder than the last. Whether this is an observation made by meteorologists I don’t know.

    I’m sure his statement was based on the strictest of scientific observations.

    I’m guessing he was strictly observing online rumours, which are always so accurate.

    Such cynicism, John, I’m shocked.
