drove to work today (my patience for the #2’s unreliability, i’m finding, wanes more and more as the temperature goes down and down — so, on a 10°F day, it’s basically nil) and stood out in front of 1155 for a few minutes.

it must have warmed up a little bit overnight, as it snowed just enough to cover the ground. but by now it’s perfectly clear, with this gorgeous blue sky as far as you can see — one of my very favorite things about winter. and i just stood in front of the building for a few minutes looking out over the snowy midway, through all the bare trees, at campus. it’s really a beautiful view.
