6am lying in bed thinking as usual but also not enjoying how hot the bedroom was and just sweating, yuck. It’s probably one of the few times the temp has dried this looks ve in Texas. But also made me smile since it reminded me of something during the winter when was a kid and makes me laugh to this day.
It was a very cold winter in PA, I was probably 10-11 in age and Poppi went and purchased some kerosene heaters for the house. When they got cranking to full blast it was close to the depths of hell. I’ve always preferred cold over the heat any day!!!
I shared a room and bed with my younger sister Shannan and it was really really hot in my room, I got up grabbed a bunch of blankets to cover her up with and once I was happy her skinny butt wouldn’t freeze, I proceeded to open the window on my side of the bed.
So imagine me laying down with my head on the pillow and I have always laid my hair across the pillow also. Well I fell sound asleep and it began snowing harder and a tad windy. Mom and Dad (Nana and Poppi) came into the room to find it extremely cold (they could see their breath) and it pretty much snowing inside. I was sound asleep, remember window is open.
They come over to me and see my head, hair and pillow are completely covered in snow. They wake me up and when I sat up, my hair was frozen and stiff as a board. They were yelling at me that I would get pneumonia and was going to freeze my sister to death.
