my ears are still tingly.

The walk to work was downright treacherous this morning. Sidewalks just a couple blocks from the Metro station were more or less uncleared, so the wind and any refreezing over made them into slippery sheets of glass. Other sidewalks were clearly used yesterday, but again, refroze overnight, so they were slippery and bumpy. Gah. The one overpass I have to walk down took like ten minutes by itself. Didn't actually fall, but man, walking slow makes the trip really long, and that's no fun in the cold.

In better news, happy birthday imamsawez!
