Cold, Rainy, Snow on the Way

Cold, horizontal rain, streets flooded, water pouring out of overtaxed storm sewers, one minute, then sunny the next: Welcome to Providence.

But we missed the disaster in Chicago where the airport shut down, stranding people who didn't get off the plane we were supposed to be on. Good old Las Vegas, hot, dry and no blizzard-Las Vegas.

Being a grad student seems to be a little like being President. You spend a few years figuring out what you would like to accomplish, then the rest of the time you look for your next job.

Cold, eastern Decembers make us want eastern food. Last night Plottie made Carbonnade Flamande, which is basically beef stew cooked in beer. There was coffee left over from breakfast so that went into the pot too. Carrots, small onions, and, to balance out the geographical essence, a California salad of tangerines, pomegranate seeds, walnuts and butter lettuce, with a dressing of white balsamic vinegar, tangerine juice and zest, and olive oil.

Some people can wrap presents and some people can't.
