Winter melancholy creeps in this petty pace from day to day
Repeating the same pattern over and over again, one that has come to define this winter: Start with a good, dark misty fog. Then cue the rain, predicted by the weather forecasts. And then, as it gets later, apply the frosting -- a couple inches of snow. Wake up in the morning to the commuter's nightmare, and venture forth, because you have to. Sigh.
