Well, I’ve been very derelict in my duties recently. Family time has eaten up all my energy, and I have eaten more than my share. But I’m back, and in honor of the huge cold monster bearing down upon practically the whole of North America, I give you this semi-week’s word: gelid.
It’s essentially an adjective for “extremely cold”, and it comes to us from the Latin gelu for “frost”. You’ll be seeing some of my pictures of this immense gelu pretty soon.
I am not very good at making snow men, as you’ll see. What I made was more a tiny snow Jabba the Hutt.
