|113°F and the power of thinking cold thoughts|
I tried thinking of penguins. Ice: cubes, bergs, slush, glaciers, icicles, tea, shave. Snow, hail, polar bears. Krill. Polar regions. Mountaintops. Soaked to the skin from a rushing glacial melt stream trying to get a fire started. Wonder Bread bags stuffed inside rubber boots. Snowball fights. Snow forts. Skating. Cross-country skiing. Sleet. Freezing rain. Wind chill. All these.
Frozen drinks straight from the blender. Brain freeze. Ice cream. Popsicles. Gelato.
Lakes of liquid methane on Enceladus. Life beneath the ice in Antarctica. Superconductors. Accelerator magnets in liquid helium. Liquid nitrogen. Dry ice. Running on Pluto. Ice lantern festival: brrr.
