Here on this rather tiny island where I live it's been rather cold
Arctic, in fact.
We've been dealing with single digit temperatures
for about a week now and there's no end in sight.
We are expecting snow all day on Thursday
and a windchill temp of well below zero on Saturday.
There has been sea smoke on the Atlantic
almost every morning this week.
I spent most the weekend inside keeping warm
only venturing out for church on Sunday morning
and I expect more of the same this weekend.
Winter has arrived.
Still, there is something strangely comforting
about a storm raging about out of doors
while I am safe and warm in doors.
