I’ve been seeing numerous social media posts about huge snowfalls.Everyone seems to be layering, sniffling, shivering, and turning up the heater.
Everyone except me. I am still battling hot flashes, which makes 30 years of them now, thank you. If anyone from the Guinness Book of World Records is reading, you are welcome to come by and document my achievement.

Last time I went through airport security, the TSA agent said she needed to pat me down. “Okay," I said, "but you’re going to get wet.” I felt like one of those signs at the waterpark whale show, where they warn you not to sit in the front row.
