It's wet

Wow. What a fabulously wonderful day to be at home, curled up with a good book and a mug of tea. Unfortunately, I'm at work.

It was actually a nice walk to work, for the most part -- I'm glad we're getting moisture, and it's exciting that it's coming down in the form of snow! I hope this bodes well for our snowfall this winter.

Another weird dream, this one more disturbingly about the death of someone I'm recently becoming friends with. I'm a little worried about the symbolism of it, but that'll be just a wait-and-see sort of thing.

And now on to tackle the day, soggy though it may be.
