I give up.
I thought I'd reached a level of acceptance with winter, a level where I could just lean in and maintain my sanity. Today, after more than 48 hours with below zero temps, I'm just done.
The gauntlet to our back door. I keep breaking the icicles off but they just keep reforming.
The snow is higher than the dog.
And at about 9:45 this morning, the entire campus lost power, likely due to the cold.
I give up. You've won, winter.
I'll be at home in front of the wood stove dreaming of a day where going outside doesn't physically hurt so much and we can see around all of the snow.
