Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Winter has come early and hard on Chicago this year.  Since December, there has not seem to be a day when it is not too cold, too windy, too icy, too snowy…. It’s just tough.  Right this very moment, I am freezing in my apartment.  And the prevailing temps?  20F feels like 6.  CP puts it best this way:  20F, feels like shite.  :)

The view from my window, 12/21/2008.

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen,
Snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Long ago.  – Christina Rosetti
