Good morning, pixies! Our long cold snap has broken, and we are experiencing respite from the blizzards, and what a relief that is. My head feels functional for the first time in a week. Today, it is -15C (6F) outside, and while that is likely still ridiculously cold for everyone else (and was for me, a little more than a month ago), after that stretch of -40 (the point where Fahrenheit and Celsius meet), and without the driving winds, it feels like spring today. E and I were able to walk to school today. I walked back with my new friend, who lives down the street, and we stood outside and chatted for a few minutes, our faces fully uncovered, instead of running for shelter. We might go skating this afternoon, for the second day in a row. I'd better take advantage of it while we can: this week is supposed to involve a lot of melting and re-freezing, every day, which I suspect will turn the roads into skating rinks (and the skating rinks into puddles, I guess?).
How's your day going?
