It was very late at night when we pulled into the motel. When we got out of the car we were stunned by the intensely cold air.
After we registered we walked over to our room, turned up the heat, and then went to the car and got our luggage out. Since there wasn’t a parking place any closer to our room we just left the car parallel parked near the office.
By the time we got back to the room we were really feeling the cold.
After we warmed up for a while I took a quick walk to the soft drink machine I had seen outside. That was when it struck me just how frigid it really was. The cold drink machine actually had a heater blowing on it to keep the cans from freezing.
Now that is cold.
