Instead of driving in the snow…
dievca is home safely.


It held up to a sh*t mess…Stand Studio – Farrah Coat

Can’t visit the Midwest without shoveling~

In this case, ice.

It was sleet, then fluffy snow, then hail, then sleet, ending up rain which froze on the driveway.

dievca just happened be wearing the appropriate coat to handle all of the choices Mother Nature decided to share – a recent purchase to take the place of three down coats:

It dried and puffed up nicely in the dryer and was ready for snow blowing 4-inches the following morning.

Gardening or snow removal – dievca’s available for hire. 🙄


You can take the dievca out

of the Midwest, but you can’t take the Midwest out of the dievca.

Such a simple thing to make someone so happy during a sh*tty time.

Not glamorous, but of use

So, let dievca tell you about having floor to ceiling windows: amazing views all the time, plus warmth when the sun is shining.

Aunt Marty’s Nose Warmer Amazon

In the winter, the windows get cold when the sun doesn’t shine, so when one of the HVAC units goes kaput and maintenance needs to order a whole new unit– it gets chilly in the evenings and on poor weather days.

dievca is layering up with clothing and blankets, but she refuses to wear a ‘nose warmer’. dievca will stoop to wearing wool Mukluk Slippers.

Remember those? Wool knit top with a leather patch bottom? dievca’s first pair were from Pier One, then she wore holes in her Aunt’s pair – had them ‘repaired’ with patches of leather and is onto her 3rd pair.

These mukluks are not for Presenting, but they solve the problem of cold feet.
Which comes under the definition ‘something of use’ in dievca’s book.

And, yes, dievca’s nose is still cold.
Cold nose warm heart.


It was a ‘yes’!


NYC weather took a 27 degree (F) drop from 55F to 28F (13C to -2C). dievca pulled out her soft fuzzy Japanese Cashmere Sweater by Side Slope and wore it to Master’s apartment. BDSM play was not the focus of the meet,  but a moment to touch and chat on the bed inspired dievca to strip everything off except the sweater.

The sweater was long enough to cover her pussy and offered hints of curves and nipples.
Soft enough for cuddling and sensation play.

It was a hit!

Peek-a-boo fuzziness and fun spilled into a strong D/s finish.
The final action answered dievca’s question on the original Fuzzy Sweater Post.

does Cosy/Snuggly = Sexy?

Master said, ‘yes’!

 


dievca is Jealous…

Master hopped a flight to ski with his son….they will have new snow for tomorrow.

Meanwhile, diecva dealt with this:

NYC: Monday’s high temperature topped out around 14 degrees, with wind chill values between minus 5 and minus 10. A wind advisory for the five boroughs was set to expire at 7 p.m., the weather service said.

(-10 F =-23.3 C)

she looked like this –>


The answer to a pressing question~

My ass, nose and boobs are cold…
Why?

The more subcutaneous fat an area has, the lower the skin temperature — which is the key to explaining why women, with two forward prominences and a larger posterior, get chilly. More fat in an area = colder skin.
(More muscle in the bottom means more blood flowing and the ability to keep an area warmer…)

So when your female partner backs her cold bottom in while spooning, know that it is a part of the female development and women have an overall external body temperature which is slightly lower than that of men. Plus, the temperature is even lower over protruding or curved body parts such as the nose and fingers.

dievca finds that a toasty fire, warm stove, hot shower or Master’s body furnace helps…

(Written while sitting on a hot water bottle.)


The first snow of 2018 and something of use.

Yes, dievca knows that there was snow in January and February 2018 – but there was snow already on the ground from 2017….

This is the first snow of Autumn.

It’s now become a wet rain/sleet mix – a mess. Walking to work and home entails carrying items in the mess and dievca isn’t known for remembering umbrellas. Her suggestion for getting by is a water-resistant backpack. And the gold standard, by far, has been her Patagonia Black Hole 26L Pack.
she has two colors:

Paintbrush

Beryl Green

Let’s just say if you are going to give up space in a NYC apartment for a second water-resistant backpack…it better be good.

(Now, dievca understands the true space-saving way would be to have just one black water-resistant backpack – but the colored ones act as reflective colors on the bike or walking. Duality.)

What a Bombogenesis looks like~

Explosive cyclogenesis (also called a weather bomb, meteorological bomb, explosive development, or bombogenesis) refers in a strict sense to a rapidly deepening extratropical cyclonic low-pressure area.  

“Bomb cyclones” or “weather bombs” are wicked winter storms that can rival the strength of hurricanes and are so-called because of the process that creates them: bombogenesis. It’s a mouthful of a meteorology term that refers to a storm (generally a non-tropical one) that intensifies very rapidly.

Can you get a cold upon a cold? Yes.  Does it make you sound sexy? Not Really.
Should you get out of the apartment during a snowstorm? Yes.
Should you shovel? No.

Yesterday, dievca woke up to a little bit of snow. In her Midwestern Winter superior tones she texted Master who was in charge of shoveling an elderly friend’s stoop/sidewalk to say, “These sissy NY-ers, they get all wound up about a little snow!”

Later in the morning dievca walked to work:

It ended up a pretty good snowstorm! 10th Ave with the new construction was a Wind Tunnel.
And dievca was happy she wasn’t around to help Master shovel. she did her duty at her Parent’s house the week before. Good news, Master didn’t throw His back out. XO

Travelling…it’s 23 below (F) = -30.55C

Hello from the frigid Midwest.  It’s cold. It was -32 F earlier.

Family, Dogs, Frank Lloyd Wright/Stickley Furniture. Nice.

Here’s the last view from NYC before leaving:

And, yes, dievca has her Kiehl’s on her face to battle the cold while wandering the land with the dogs. Catch up with y’all later. XO

So, I was thinking about frostbite…

But I don’t live in Wisconsin…

It’s cold. No, it’s not Montana, North Dakota, Canada cold – but it’s enough to worry about windchill when you ride a bike to work and the wind comes off the river and whips through the buildings.  dievca was pedalling at a standstill today.

This chart is her friend:

Today’s (Thursday’s) temps in Celsius were -11C (low) to -7.22C (high) winds running at 5-10 mph with gusts at 22 mph. Fahrenheit 12F (low) to 19F (high). It will continue to be cold through the New Year.

dievca’s ride is less than 30 minutes, so she has been good.  But, it makes for tears, frozen breath, and ridiculous-looking layered outfits. When its cold, fashion goes out the window….
Apparently that is the theme, this week, safety first.

Here are dievca’s cold weather standbys:

dievca wishes you luck and stay warm.


Thundersnow.

Yesterday, they were on the High Line.

And though crocuses are hardy…
Today, dievca is pretty sure they are gone.

Thundersnow can do that to you.

Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thundersnowstorm, is an unusual kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain. It typically falls in regions of strong upward motion within the cold sector of an extratropical cyclone. Thermodynamically, it is not different from any other type of thunderstorms, but the top of the cumulonimbus cloud is usually quite low. In addition to snow, graupel, or hail may fall. ~ wikipedia

PS. there is more snow – this is what has shown up on a protected corner of dievca’s fire escape. she’s barefoot and not about to step out for better photos, sorry. XO


Is it cold by you? Arctic Air

NYC was sitting in a “cold zone”. It dropped into the 20’s (Farenheit) and is now in the 40’s and rainy.  dievca’s Mom says it was cold in the Midwest, too.

Is it cold by you?

The arctic air is movin’ on…..but until then, dievca is wearing:

Perfect for in the shade — layers to peel off if in the sun.
A workhorse of an outfit with fun quirks.
OK, it seems warmer this morning.
Cross fingers.

just call dievca the “Brown Wren” — staying toasty

dievca may be a plain brown bird with an effervescent personality in her “go to” – “God, it’s cold” outfit.

The House Wren is a common backyard bird over nearly the entire Western Hemisphere. Listen for its rush-and-jumble song in summer and you’ll find this species zipping through shrubs and low tree branches, snatching at insects. House Wrens will gladly use nest boxes, or you may find their twig-filled nests in old cans, boots, or boxes lying around in your garage.

Hmmm– a practical bird for a practical dievca.
