The snow storm that we Indianapolis were waiting for with baited breath seems to have passed us by. I'm not complaing. I don't mind snow, so much, but I'm just not in the mood for it right now. Later on this month, maybe, but not right now. It was bitter cold today. I mean bitter cold. And the wind was blowing something fierce. I haven't experienced wind and wind gusts like I dealt with today. I literally had to lean into the wind to keep from being blown over by it. I'm not sure why the wind so vicious, I have a feeling it has something to do with the way the buildings on campus are situated. Maybe they form a wind tunnel of sorts, either way it was cold. When I got to the stairs I was pushed by the wind. That made for some interesting stepping. Then I got inside and it was and, as the phrase goes, "close." So my low-grade asthma kicked in and I was gasping for breath while my heart banged away in my chest. It was a little "touch and go" for about 15 minutes or so.
The wind its insane how hard the wind was blowing this morning. It whistled and buffeted the house all night.
THe little weather doo-hickey in the lower right hand corner tells me that it is 25 degrees outside and 11 degrees in the wind chill. I don't care what you say, that's cold. It's days like this that make me think, ever so quickly, fondly of Texas, but then I rethink that... *chuckles*
Emma, the princess cat, seems to be fitting well into the household. As I looked out the window this morning I reminded her how lucky she was that I had brought her in, she just blinked at me and sashaed over to her little food bowl and munched on her breakfast of kittenchow.
Ah, well,so be it.
