Happy New Year, VTKountry. And what a frigid start to it here in Cambridge. It's 5 degrees outside. "feels like" negative 7. Which would have sucked if I was in perfect health, but is just that much more sucky given that I rang the new year in with a cold. I'm over most of it, but my lungs feel like they could collapse if someone flicked a peanut at my chest. Fortunately for me, no one has flicked any peanuts at me today. I slept with my winter hat on last night and the humidifier on in my room. All that condensation froze on my window and created this neat little wood sap colored icicle in my window sill:
and here are some shots of the crystalization on some other windows in the house:
It's days like these that I'm pretty glad that I don't have to leave the house to go to work.
