All the cupboards and closets in our apartment are heated. The kitchen cupboards have the hotwater for upstairs running through them. We keep the dishes by the pipes and eat on warmed plates like in fancy restaraunts. We keep the food in the portion of the cupboards furthest away from the pipes and hope for the best.

I haven't been able to figure out what keeps the other cupboards and closets heated. It might be the hot water pipes for the bathroom that keep the pantry toasty. We now keep the potatos in a box under the table. I can only figure that the elevators heat my bedroom closet. It's nice to put on warm clothes, but I have to wonder if elevators ordinarily generate so much excess heat.

I'm not complaining. I like our having my clothes and plates warm. My desk is by the window, and as I write this I've got cold air washing over my feet. This afternoon I sat here with the curtains open and the sun shining brightly into the room. I wasn't cold then at all.

I'm worried about global warming though. It seems winter can't get started and it's already January. I'm starting to wonder if this is what it'll be like now. Instead of winter, we'll have November for five months. It snowed for five minutes this afternoon, just before the sun came out and made sure there was no trace of it left behind. It was the first time I had seen it snowing since Christmas eve in Ottawa.

Sometimes I imagine this winter as a car that won't start. You can hear the engine trying, but it just can't turn over. I've had a lot of experience with engines freezing up in winter, it just seems slightly ironic that the same thing could happen to winter itself.

Mainly, I'm worried about global warming because, if it's November in January, what will it be in July. It might very well be Arizona.
