Cold Squared

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008, 12:58 am

I saw this coming a mile away. Well, about a day away. Started getting a scratchy throat and when a cough drop and serious hydration didn’t do the trick, I knew I was toast. Got your basic cold, felt lousy all day, etc etc. A good day to stay indoors…except that I couldn’t, as I needed milk. And coffee. And cold medication. No, I was never a boy scout.

It snowed pretty much all day and I looked out the window and admired all the fluffiness. It boggles my mind that there are people who have never seen snow, when it happens outside my window for months at a time. Come to think of it, there are probably billions of people who have never seen snow, when you expand the search worldwide. Some of the folks I met in Costa Rica had never seen snow. Before I went there I’d never seen monkeys before. Well, I had in a zoo, but not running around wild. Except there was a macaque that got loose in Pittsburgh about ten years ago. But I didn’t actually see him myself. Can you tell that the cold medication is kicking in?

I braved the cold and went out on my balcony to take this picture:

Those fireflies are actually blowing snowflakes illuminated by the security lamp affixed to my building. Messed with the white balance to make them even more orange-y.

I think going to bed right now would be a really good idea.
