Oooh, real winter!

We had a nice snowstorm the other night and it was minus 20 according to our kitchen thermometer this morning (though that thermometer has a tendency to exaggerate). In Fahrenheit that’s… you know, I’m not going to do the conversions anymore. The rest of the world uses Celsius, and we Americans better learn it too. Anyway, minus 20 is cold enough to make your nose feel crinkly when you inhale.

It’s sunny today and flakes of snow are lazily floating around and sparkling in the sunlight. The trees look frosty and everything is just unbearably picturesque.
