YES! Finally!! Clear and cold. 18 degrees tonight. Grasses crunch underfoot and the stars burn in the sky. The northern rim is hazy with aurora. Green and purple ribbons flare up and coronas shimmer overhead. Life in the North. Beautiful.
I unpacked my puff pants and took my blue parka out of the closet tonight. I was cozy on my runs, completely wowed by the light show, content to breathe the chill air.
