Temperatures at the cabin last week ranged from -28 degrees F to +36 degrees F causing some very interesting weather changes. With 26 inches of snow on the ground, the wide swing in temperature created a heavy fog which is unusual for this time of year. It was strange to witness and I scribbled my feelings down which turned into the following little ditty:
White cold from the North numbs and steals ones feeling.
White ice covers the water and gives the lake a hard ceiling.
White snow covers the landscape, the ground and the trees.
White fog from the South hides from sight, all of these.
Walking out on the ice in the fog would have been a little scary as you could easily have been disoriented in the fog as everything was white and no points of reference where visible. Kind of cool. Pardon the pun.
Happy New Year!
