After a terrible month which brought us record low temperatures, blizzards, floods, and freezing rains; after a solid month in which we saw the sun only in brief flashes through the clouds, or as a pale silver disc that more closely resembled the moon, or in our dreams; after a bizarre week of impenetrable fog, night and day, finally, finally!

This morning dawned brilliant and clear, the mountains are out all around us, to the north, the east and the south, looking magnified and sharp as a knife, and the sky is bright, unbroken blue from edge to edge. I want to sing all day long! I don't even care that it's so cold that we're back to hauling water.
