Home for Christmas

The Mystery Woman and I wish you the best of holidays from our perch just above Minnehaha Falls, made famous for white people by that Longfellow guy. Indians already knew of its beauty. The 80-foot waterfall is now solid ice. At the time the picture was snapped, the outside temp was 14 degrees with a wind chill of 4. Flannel-lined everything: pants, shirts, car keys. Two more snows predicted this week.

Quite an adventure. Clink.

The mufflers are protection for our faces. De riguer in winter hereabouts.

Could be worse. We have friends in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I noticed the high on a recent day was -35 degrees, the low was -40 degrees.

I wish y'all a happy holiday season, too. Thanks for the photo.

And keep writing, George.
