shelter from the storm

Tonight the shelter where I work expanded its capacity to make room for fifteen more people, a special emergency shelter program, because of the weather. The weather is dangerous. It snowed today during my Civil Rights Litigation class and I sat and stared out the window mesmerized. I love snow and would love it to snow more but worry for all the people outside on cold nights like tonight. Not everyone will find their way to shelters and there aren't enough shelters to accomodate everyone anyway. Weather is less novel when you're homeless. Weather is life or death.
