The first snowflakes of the year look puffed and air-dried compared to the wet globs to come in January. The air is dry and cold enough for the snow, which slips between summer’s last sun-sweetened fringe and the cold-cracked currents of earth’s crisp winter. Whoops.
The icy season has settled in.
Bummer. The concrete outside looked dry, tho cold, when I woke up this morning. Alas, it is here: winter in the northern hemisphere with its of sporadic outdoor skating and make-do indoor setups.
