Bright sun. I was going to take a picture of a long icicle backed
by the clear blue sky, but I was so absorbed in removing the window
screen that I didn’t see how I knocked just that icicle – but I
did hear it snap off clean (‘kckk’) and drop straight into
the snow (‘whff’), and I laughed.

Just right for running around in snow. A big black husky mix who had
visited us before came bounding through the park this afternoon.
We chased each other through the powder – me tossing sticks, he
diving after them, face white with snow. The snow didn’t melt at
all until it got inside my boots.
