I put on my bicycle helmet and go to the basement.

I keep the front door closed until the weather gets warmer. I can do that because I have plenty of canned food in stock.

I put on my footie PJs and look ironic.

My question to Bob is, what do the lemurs do in this weather? Are they into winter sports at all? Just asking.

As for me I don't do anything different. After all nothing really changes for us humans except we have to turn the heat up. I really don't think it is ever going to get so bad that we can not make it to the store when we need to.

The lemurs stay in the lemur-cave in winter weather. Once in a while, one dons a wool sweater and treks out to the wood shed to get some more fuel for the potbelly stove. There's generally a chaotic game of Risk going on.

Okay I lied. I left VT around 4 to catch the bus out to Walmart to stock up on doughnuts, got as far as the front porch and started sliding so I went back inside, sobbing bitterly. It is so bad out there I can't make it to the store when I need to.
