Don't forget to refill your humidifier and stock up on body butter. While everyone bitches and moans about the wind and cold outside, it's easy to forget the toll all the drying indoor heat can take on our skin ... and sinuses. Don't let this happen to you!

Last night I was on the main campus in Storrs and it was 9 and a light wind, this kid walks by me in shorts. He had a light jacket on, shorts and no hat or gloves. KIDS!
