Studies in Cold and Gray

After enjoying a few days wafting with the friendly 
promise of Spring! we were greeted this morning by frigid 
gusts of air thirty degrees colder than they 
were yesterday. Unfortunately, I hadn't worn my warmest
coat, so stood miserably stoic at the bus stop, my nose
warmed by my own breath as it drifted among 
the deep folds of my neck scarf.
Only traces remain of the snow that held us 
in its thrall for weeks, but the island of cold air that 
swept in overnight make it seem as though those
traces of cold have settled permanently 
between my shoulder blades.
I may never stand straight again.

Quite a contrast between snow and pavement!

We've got the same conditions here again.... feels like the polar vortex came back again.
