baby it's cold outside

I like the fact that we have irrigation in our neighborhood. It is so much less expensive than a sprinkler system. It waters the yard deep and thoroughly. It is so pleasant in the summer and fall to step into the cool water while watering and working in the yard.
It has a few down sides though. Tonight the water came into our neighborhood in the middle of a rainstorm. It's dark. The air is cold. The rain is cold. The irrigation water is cold . . . no, freezing. And I had to schlepp through the yard to get the water started. Then when I finally warmed up, I had to go out into the water again and move the water flow to the other side of the yard. AAAHHHH! I cant stop sh-sh-sh-shivering.
If I have to go out one more time tonight, I'm going to wear a pair of these:
