Word of the semi-week: gelid!

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.
