One of the down sides to my apartment complex is that the washing machines and dryers are in the building next door. I specifically remember thinking to myself, not such a big deal now while it's summer but I bet in the winter it will be interesting.
Current Temperature: 30F feels like 22F - Light Freezing Rain
Loads of Laundry to do: Four
Location of Machines: down the front steps (covered in ice) around the corner of the building (not icy but it's raining) and down another set of stairs (partly icy) into the next building's basement
Assessment of fingers: painfully cold and bright red (I'm wearing gloves next time)
