I am always amazed at how cold it is above the clouds at 36,000ft. I mean I understand the physics, don’t get me wrong. But, what I don’t understand is how the airline industry keeps the heat so darned low on these flights. Is it an effort to save money? I would gladly give up my meal and pop if it means I don’t have to shiver. At the moment, I am wearing long pants, socks, a short sleeve top, a fleece hoodie (and the hoodie is on my head thank you very much) and an overcoat of fleece that is water and wind resistant! Oh yes, and on top of that I have added a very thin airline blanket to my lap that was on my seat when I arrived. Yet despite all these maneuvers, I am wishing very hard for a thicker blanket right now and perhaps some gloves so that when I touch my boyfriend he doesn’t scream the word “COLD”. I suppose though that I should be thankful. At least in the plane it is a hell of a lot warmer than in the terminal where after awhile my appendages were numb and my lips turned blue. I guess I just need to be more positive. Maybe numb is something I can live with, as long as I don’t have to touch anyone?
