Winter has finally hit us here in Ames with wind chill factors below zero last week and freezing rain and snow this week. Both my thumbs are cracked, one Mindy is home with bronchitis, the other Mindy has broken her hand and poor Melissa has gotten what we’ll just call the bug that is traveling around campus. So I had to laugh when I saw this on one of the zodiac plans this morning.

Yes Aries, it would be great if you could do something about January in Iowa.

I hope none of our readers is feeling as put upon by the season.  If you are, there are always the hopeful words I heard from a student walking on campus this morning, “spring break is just six weeks away.”
