"why can't i feel anything?"

i walked back from class this afternoon with some of the people in my program. as we approached the edge of the quad, the wind picked up, buffeting us between the two buildings, forcing us to bow our heads and fight to keep our balances.

"i've lost my ears! i've lost my ears!" came a plaintive cry from lindsey.

not literally, but it sure did feel that any body part exposed to the biting clawing wind would definitely be lost if not covered very quickly. last week there was a warning on the radio that flesh exposed to the wind would freeze in three minutes.

makes me glad i've got a coat and warm things to wear.
