Frostbite in the frozen tundra  DEC 22 1998

I got my first ever case of frostbite this morning, and let me tell you...it's not a lot of fun. It happened when I was out in the frozen tundra this morning putting anti-freeze in Nichol's car. In my rush to get the both of us to work in a timely fashion, I didn't put on my gloves - even though it was about minus 10 degrees F this morning - and my thumb got all numb...and not in a good way either. It's just now thawing out, four hours later...most of the feeling is back, and it hasn't turned any funny colors.

Which is good.
