There is something special about the sunrise and sunsets of mid -winter, they are some of the best all year. Unfortunately there are not that many due to our heavy and consistent cloud/snow-cloud cover. Also as in this case- just because there was a pretty sunrise does not mean that the sun will actually shine at all during the day. The day will be gray and white and dark. We are in a pattern of bitter cold, snow, lake effect snow, warming to 24ish then dropping to zero or below zero and warming again to mid 20's. Right now a day at 30 really feels oh so warm. As long as the wood cook stove is running the house is very comfortable. Hoping you are warm and the sun is shining wherever you are. Happy Friday!
