We picked the direction North East and began walking. It was rather cold, but we needed to get veggies to stir fry for dinner, so we drove on, enjoying the almost silent surroundings and peaceful snowfall. Most stores had closed up, there were almost no people on the streets, and for once the city wasn't filled with car horns, most people having decided to stay inside rather than face trying to drive in the snow.
The snow made me giddy and homesick at the same time. I liked the sharp cold that hits your face when you're all bundled up and the wind blows the snow, but it made me want to go home. I suppose all that's left to do is snuggle up by the fire (i.e. space heater near our bed) and read a book. More on New Years soon!
