Warmer – 5 above zero today. Hard, bright and sunny. The brown
woods soak up the sun like a sponge. The odd birch trunk shines it

Cloudscapes swirl across the sun, as if the sun were working
some magical incantations. Whatever it is, it’s hidden from us on
the ground. All we see is an occasional puff of snow flurries.
