Last night, after coming home from an event with my husband in 20 degree weather, I reflected on how grateful I am for central heating and wondered how anyone survived without it in the past.  I can’t imagine the misery, and understand the reality of a short life span living with constant discomfort and effects of the elements.

This morning we woke up to what CNN calls the “Monster Storm” across the country.  It’s 19 degrees outside, and the fountain on our back patio is frozen over!  Thousands of flights have been canceled leaving countless business travelers stranded across the country.  Not only am I grateful for central heating, but also for the good fortune of being warm and comfortable at home.  It’s the little things in life that I’m grateful for every day.

Keep warm out there!
