That's referred to as "sleeping on it" for a reason. In graduate school I discovered the usefulness of a "power nap." If I was struggling with some aspect of a paper or such, and felt an overwhelming need to take a nap, I stopped resisting it. Set a timer for 15-20 minutes, and invariably when I woke an answer presented itself. My brain just needed the down time to sort it out.

We are lucky in Texas to not be in the deep freeze that so many are, but I have to say that I have this feeling of general cold in just thinking about that polar vortex splitting and descending from the north pole. I have a pot of beans simmering on the stove; I imagine it is beef stew or chicken pot pie weather in the north. Stay warm, everyone.
