It’s cold out there this Monday. A balmy 14 degrees as I write. It’s the kind of cold that makes your teeth and your face hurt, though that may also be because just the day before, it wasn’t that cold at all. Sometimes in Indiana I think I can feel the next weather front coming though inside my sinus cavities.
