The sunny side of this winter’s snow

It happened this morning: -6 Celsius/21 Fahrenheit, no wind, beautiful sky. As I was walking across campus, I kept taking off accessoires that have become my standard attire: gloves, scarf around face, hat. Yes, at -6Celsius I start feeling warm nowadays. I am so glad our human bodies are as amenable as they are.

Boston has been creepy cold, we have gone more than 40days without a day above 0 degrees. Just with everything in live, it depends on the perspective, and mine changed after a marvellous skiing weekend in Quebec Canada, with windchill temperatures of -35 Celsius/-31 Fahrenheit.

Here are some impressions of the sunny side of this splendid winter wonderland that I am currently living in. (By the way, don’t be fooled by this happy note. As you might have noticed, my last post was a while ago. I had to hibernate for a while because this weather is making daily life considerably harder: my daily walk to the T station is more like an outdoor trek and my hands are constantly bleeding, even though I am moisturizing like crazy. ButI did not want to bother you with yet another bad mood-post, so I simply waited for the sun to cheer me up)
