Lovely Winter

Standard

Today is one of those gorgeous days that make me glad I live in Fairbanks.  It’s cold – about  -15F – but there’s not a cloud in the sky.  We’ve had enough snow recently to cover each little twig and branch on the bare birch and cottonwoods, and to leave nice piles on the spruce boughs.  The hills around town look like rumpled white velvet.  Pictures don’t do it justice, but I’ll try to post one soon. It’s just sooooo beautiful.  Sigh.  And, it’s great cocoa weather.  Cheapo powdered cocoa mix from the supermarket can be improved upon very easily – use milk instead of water, and add some honey.  YUM.  Don’t forget the ginger snaps!
