Yesterday dawned clear and warm. But by the time sunset rolled around, the temperature had dropped and the wind had risen. Ridiculously. In fact, I had a Marilyn Monroe moment yesterday afternoon. Except, of course, that instead of standing over a subway grate and wearing a gauzy skirt, I was wearing tights and a wool jumper (that went down to my knees!) and was unloading boxes out of my car. All I can say is that I still have very fast reflexes!

As I was leaving my meeting just after 9, the air had settled into a decidedly nippy temperature range, but in a seasonable way, if you know what I mean. (I am not in favor of the sauna-like weather we experienced last week!) And then it started to snow.

It was just flurries, but still… It was lovely and majestic and magical and Christmassy.

At least until I turned the corner into the wind, again….
