The Snow Is Lovely, Bright, and Deep

It delights me to look out and see the next year’s firewood, topped with a heavy blanket of this year’s snow.  It reminds me of home-made preserves, sealed for next year under that thick layer of opaque paraffin wax.

This morning the indoor temps were about the lowest we’ve seen this season: 43º in the kitchen, 45º in the bedroom, 37º in the coldest recess of the cellar.  Tonight there is a forecast for lows in the -5 to -15ºF range.  Seems like we’re bottoming out here.  Needless to say, we’ve got a little bit of fire going this morning.
