The temperature continues to drop in the Pittsburgh area. There are school closings. People are being warned not to go outside if they don’t have to be outside. Senior Citizen Centers are being turned into warming shelters available to anyone. Over passes and bridges are freezing over. People are being told not to hesitate to call the 911 emergency number if they find themselves in difficulties because of the temperature. As I write this (10:00 a.m.) the temperature is in the 20s and is falling. There are scattered snow flurries in the area. The wind chill is around 12 degrees and it will fall to around a minus 20 degrees tonight.
The Old Soldier has an overdue library book. Every day the book cost me 20 cents. The book is now four days overdue and tomorrow the temperature will be worse. The high will be around five degrees. I think I’ll just wait until the weekend when the temperature will go back up into the 30s and 40s.
According to the newscasters, these are the coldest temperatures that the people of Pittsburgh have experienced in twenty years.
Hello, my brother and sister readers and writers from all over the world. What a mess the weather is here in Pittsburgh. With the temperature below freezing and dropping, the Old Soldier is thankful for his small but warm apartment. There is plenty of food and beer in the refrigerator. And I’m happy to have the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette to keep me busy.
I plan to publish a new erotic flash fiction short story by Anna Bayes this week. Anna is one of our most popular writers of erotic fiction and you can usually find several of her stories on the front page along with a revealing interview that you don’t want to miss.
Since the temperature is supposed to be warmer this weekend, I still plan to go to karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy Saturday night; which means that a new report on karaoke as performance art will be published soon.
So, even though the temperature is freezing in Pittsburgh, the Old Soldier is still on duty.
