Almost there...

Stanford shuts down for the two weeks around the holidays. This ostensibly saves them money on heat and electricity and whatnot. The downside is that no one came to turn the heat back on before people arrived for work this morning. It's the kind of cold in here that I usually only experience in Quintette. Every surface and every object is permeated with cold. It's not just cold, it's radiating cold, and the radiator will take a day or two to thaw it out.

Luckily, Jo-Ann and I are the kind of gals who have space heaters, so our office is the one warm refuge in the building. Coworkers keep dropping in to snuggle up to our heaters and remember how nice it was to be at home and warm for the last 2 weeks.
