The midwest can be bleak in winter. The cornfields have been plowed under, the leaves have fallen off of the trees and its cold. Really cold. We hurry from house to car to building to car to house without hardly taking a breath outside because its cold and dismal. Seasonal depression is common. So much so that it can induce hibernation, melancholy, general unfriendliness... or... the stealing of rice cookers.
But, luckily, for those traveling through Indiana, there's Elwood. The center of Hoosierville. Alight in all its glory. Urging us all to twinkle through the muck.
