Be Careful What You Wish For

Throughout Fall Quarter, I've stated that I want a "real Chicago winter" as opposed to the gray, snowless winters of my first two years. I might want to take back that wish now. True, I did have a snowball fight on the eve of first week. But since then, there's been sleet (covering everything in two inches of deadly ice), fiendish winds, and today's air temperatures of -5 with a windchill of 20 below. OK, OK, I'm not fishing for pity. No, wait, I am. I have a cold, I'm weak, I have papers and midterms and five classes, and I can't make it across campus without my heaviest jacket and a hood.
