1) There was lightning and thunder last night. In the middle of the snow storm. I've never seen that before - it was after sunset and everything was that orangish pale glow you get when it's snowing and blowing and then everything lit up. It was very cool.
2) I was just stung by a wasp on my little toe. While standing in my bedroom upstairs. No really. My parents have been having work done on the house so a few different bugs have found their way inside as the siding has been redone and the windows replaced. J killed a wasp in the spare room, and then we went into my room to look at something and suddenly there was a burning pain in my toe. I looked down and saw another wasp crawling away. (We killed him too.) My little toe is a little swollen and numb but seems otherwise okay.
So apparently by coming back to winter I have confused the world and it's trying to cram all of the seasons into one visit.
