... before it left us.
Before the thaw, one last demonstration of foul temper from the weather: on the Tuesday, a burst of freezing rain. I've never seen frosted glass that looked like frosted galss before, but that was how our Velux skylight looked,
There is very little snow left now, just the sodden, sooty, smudged aftermath, and now a night of fog and cold and high winds. Remarkable moments of peace and beauty, and of warmth and fun and conviviality, but this is a hard, hard winter, all in all.
