Baby, it's cold outside.
And by cold, I mean... BLIZZARD!!!
WOW. This morning I woke up around 4:30 with the wind making my windows creak loudly. I got up to get a drink of water. I looked out the window and couldn't even see the trees just beyond my apartment building. All I could see was a sheet of white streaking past my window. I checked weather.com, which told me that the temperature was in the low teens but would feel like -10, with wind speeds around 30 mph and occasional gusts of up to 50 mph. There was a special severe weather warning flashing across the top of the page, and when I clicked on it, it said that the state of Massachusetts has declared an emergency. The roads are not currently safe, and people were advised not to venture outside or their lives could be in danger. I have to say, all this is kind of exciting... as long as I'm watching the snow whiz by from the inside of my safe, cozy, warm apartment. But anyway, the conditions are more reasonable now than they were at 4:30, and I'm thinking the bad weather is no longer enough of an excuse to keep me from walking down to the music building to practice... oh well.
