The past few nights have been gloriously bright. This photo, though not so great, was taken well after sunset last night. The western sky was black as black. But the moon lit up the whole world. And Earth reflected all that light with sparkle, glitter, and diamonds of ice. If it wasn't so beastly cold one could accomplish a lot out of doors during the full moons of winter. Temps will plunge to -27 degrees F tonight. Predictions often fall short of the cold we experience here on the lake. We can be 5 to 10 degrees colder up here than the town of Bemidji. Pile on the quilts.
