Nipping at your nose

Jacques Frost has been busy these past few mornings. With lows just under freezing, we wake up to a frosty landscape. That's normal for this time of year, of course. But it doesn't really feel all that cold outside. For one thing, there is no wind. That makes a big difference.

Wednesday's light frost gave everything a little tinge of white.

Also, the sky is clear and the sun shines. That is, it did until yesterday afternoon when a thick fog formed. From what I can see out the window this morning, it's still pretty foggy out there. The sun won't be up for another hour and a half. I'm hopeful it will be able to burn off the fog, but it may not. We could be in for a gray day.


  1. You're right about the wind. Here, in Florida, it was 50 degrees with a strong north wind at eight o'clock this morning. It felt very cold!

  2. I meant to mention this yesterday, with your comments about oysters. If you haven't read it, "The Oysters of Locmariaquer", by Eleanor Clark, is a fascinating (although not always the easiest reading, given that she digresses) book on oysters in Brittany.

  3. bettyann, sounds like summer here! Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little... ;)

    gosia, it's better than snow!

    emm, thanks!


Tell me what you think!
