Warm and Cozy

This photo of Juneau, taken by Elise Tomlinson from Douglas Island, is a good winter view. From the sky, I'm thinking it was taken during the day, with a lot of cloud cover, but from the lights in the city, obviously not at high noon. The mercury has been rising, clouds have come in, and we have snow. The temperature was 28ยบ today and expected to be in the mid-30s tomorrow. Tomorrow we expect rain, and most of the snow at my elevation* will wash away. Meanwhile, it feels really nice to not have to wear as many layers, to go barefoot indoors, and to have my bedroom window open a couple of inches again.

* My apartment is as high as the lights go up the side of Mount Roberts.
