First Day of Winter

The weather today was sunny and it got up to 40 degrees, which is actually the warmest it’s been in at least 5 or 6 days. We’ve had a run of blustery, chilly weather here in southeast Michigan. On Monday night the temperature went down to 1 degree below zero, which is probably the coldest I’ve ever seen it (including last year).

So far the amount of snow has been underwhelming, but I enjoyed walking around in the flurries yesterday afternoon. I had turned in my final paper and just gotten off work and the walk from campus to the Ann Arbor District Library was strangely exhilarating. I will still be working during the break, but the respite from schoolwork is welcome.
