The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets.
From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.
Not a speed record — my commute took a seemingly endless 1 hr, 8 min — but a coldness record. The NOAA weather for our area says that it’s 8°F (-13°C) with a windchill that brings the temperature to -4°F (-20°C). I well believe it. My eyelids were sticking when I blinked.
This is the power of wool, though: I wore two pairs of merino wool socks, with another fuzzy outer sock, and those plus my booties kept my feet warm enough that I still had feeling in my toes by the time I arrived at work. Granted, I was feeling lots of cold in my toes, but they didn’t even have that alarming white look that I’ve had previous winters. More wool socks for me!
So winter has arrived. Yesterday we got our first real snow (nothing major or exciting, but definitely snow), and today we got our first real cold. I guess it had to happen eventually.
