It’s so nasty here today that weather.com doesn’t even have a proper name for it. They’re calling it “wintry mix”, which sounds less like weather and more like a snack food. Like Chex Mix.
My boots are leaking. I need new boots. I haven’t gotten a pair of new boots since I bought those two freshman year at NU. And from the looks of it, I’ll need a pretty hefty pair here. Northwestern would shovel the snow for us. They don’t do that here, so much of the time you’re slushing through half-melted snow which turns into Lake New York at each intersection.
It is beautiful though.
