"I thought of you in the sweet
South; and the wind at the window was only
A warm breeze to melt the icicles of sleep."
from A Window on the North
R. A. D. Ford
Yesterday as expected we got our blizzard
not a huge amount of snow, but high wind
chills with lots of drifting snow, mayhem
and confusion. Today it was still cold -14 c
at lunch with the sun showing blue and red
thru a cloudy sky. I saw only one magpie and
two jackrabbits that wanted no part of photos.
"Else winter reigns throughout the self
and we become
more barren than the nest
that sways within a winter wind."
