Did you guys hear about this polar vortex thing? Rumor has it, it’s been truly insanely cold the past few days, even for us hearty Midwesterners. But temperatures seem to be looking up, and both I and my car made it through with no intense damage. And I got a chance to work out my Slytherin scarf, knitted for me by my fabulous roommate, which did a great job of keeping my face warm as well as venting my hot breath up into the inside of my glasses to freeze there. You win some, you lose some.
