The weather in Wakkanai has been so fabulous since my arrival in August that I had slightly forgotten just how much I hate being cold. Buildings here are rarely air-conditioned, and the weather has basically been that nice temperature where all you need is a light jacket. Well, apparently the weather decided to change while I was away. Now, it is COLD! My house is starting to get that unpleasant chill. Tomorrow or Tuesday I am going to ask my supervisor how my epic heater works. I'm pretty sure he will laugh! I'm really not ready to go into heater mode, but I also really don't like being cold. I've fallen asleep in my dorky winter hat a couple times.
I do have some good news, though! I found that the cafe across the street serves really nice hot drinks. It may be my new after work spot! Today I had a caramel milk tea (YUM!). Perhaps I really should consider joining Curves! Yes, there is a Curves in Wakkanai!
So, if you don't hear from me for a little while, it's probably because I'm burrowed somewhere. And fall has just begun!
