Winter in Vermont really, really sucks. And Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) makes me really, really proud to live here.

highs & lows
When I woke up this morning it was 2 degrees. For lunch I ate mac 'n' cheese and a pancake. I've been trudging around the house all day in a head-to-toe fleece ensemble, with a down blanket wrapped around my torso like a towel. This afternoon I boiled a pot of water to alleviate the crucifying dryness in our apartment. On our walk tonight I had to carry the dog the last half mile home because his booties fell off and the salt on the sidewalk hobbles him.
