I was happy as a clam when the temperatures were hovering around 25 F, even if the skies were overcast. Now the temperatures are dipping down into the teens, huge difference. The cold is really unpleasant, stings my nose when I inhale and its just going to get colder. Speaking of noses have had a runny nose for a couple of weeks, adjusting to the cold I guess. Strep and a stomach flu seem to be making the rounds among the students. So over all cannot complain too much.
Today is really nice out, its about 22 with clear skies. Even with the cold, clear days make things so much better. A few days ago saw some kids sledding on the hill with the Halloween decorations. Was talking to someone from an area outside of Fairbanks, they hitch sleds to snowmobiles to take children trick or treating up here, different take on the tradition. One of the things I miss most is passing out candy with Marilyn and Snickers, no children at Cutler last year and this year I live in a building with a locked entrance. So most likely no trick or treaters.
As an aside this would drive Noel nuts, I am listening to music on computer with the TV while writing this post. Have a linguistic midterm I need to finish and as always statistics to study. Hope the pictures are enjoyable.
