Another reason not to smoke

This is what -48 C with windchill and fog looks like.

And I was able to enjoy this scenic view whilst walking back to the office from tonight's town council meeting.

Yes, I said walking...

That's why. Well, also because town hall is about a two-minute jaunt from my office and I'm young and healthy and I can take the cold. Right. Just to be clear: I returned to the office afterward not because I had to file, but because I had to get warm before journeying on.

My goal for this winter is to keep all my fingers and toes.


  1. Holy God Katie. Let me know if you need me to send you a box of those chemical pouches to warm up your hands and feet.

  2. That fingers and toes stuff is just me being dramatic. Long underwear makes everything better, winter-wise.
