The ice on the windows had been thawing in the afternoon sunlight the past couple weeks, but not today.
Today it stays frozen, as the temperatures peak at 5 degrees. 5!
I'm floundering in an abyss of end-of-the-semester work, such as research papers, last minute readings, making flashcards, that other research paper (oh crap) that I had forgotten about which is due in two days and I haven't even picked a topic yet. Yeah. That's how it's going. So, it (has been and) will be quiet here for a couple days.
