Mmm, grits

Got a call at 6am from the morning DJ with the first batch of closings and cancellations. He probably would've gotten to me earlier if he hadn't had trouble starting his car to get to the studio!

Most of the area school districts are closed for the day. It's not that we got pounded with snow; in fact, very little fell last night. But it's ridiculously cold, and severe winds made for dangerous wind chills and lots of blowing and drifting, so dangerous road conditions.

Apparently, on his News and Comment radio program this morning, Paul Harvey said "Right now, it's warmer on Mars than it is in Ithaca, New York."

My morning granola bar was much earlier than usual, so I was glad I brought a few packets of instant grits to work the other day for cold morning emergencies. (I have some oatmeal packets around here somewhere, but since there's no place to unpack most of my stuff to yet, they're in one of these boxes.)

Unfortunately, the communal kitchen has no butter, molasses, or red-eye gravy... so I had the grits plain.
