Mostly Cloudy
-8°C (17.6°F) Stepped outside for a little walk. The wind, and I think the moisture in the air bring words like “bracing” and “biting” to mind. It feels a lot colder than it is.

Cloudy; Light Snow
-6°C (21.2°F) A “golden orb
” sunrise, followed by a fresh half-inch of snow, and now gusting winds. Last night I read from Paul Gruchow’s
Journal of a Prairie Year
:

The point is not the survival of the individual. Individuals are never destined to survive for very long. Nor is the survival of the species the point. Species come and go. The point is the survival of life itself.

It’s a hard pill to swallow, being an individual myself :-)
