10 below, warm inside

this winter people are dealing with really harsh weather.
here i am in my warm farmhouse.
post holiday
night is beginning to fall
a little bit later
and the iced snow reflects light.
inside, where i pretty much stay
except for quick walks,
i've been busy
prepping for the classes in oz,
mapping the nyfa grant proposals,
printing papers for a book.
and i find myself
wishing the cold wasn't so cold,
the days not so short,
the sky not so gray.
this is why people stray south
in the cold time.

photos from two days ago
today there's more snow.
and the sky is bright with minus 10 COLD and BRIGHT!
