qotd, did not see that coming + tapping the Dumpster
many things make a post

like being beaten with a mallet

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.
