The winter wonderland continues amidst a deep freeze. It's a terrible time for homeless people and those too poor to have homes properly insulated as well as for postal workers and others with outside jobs. But for the rest of us, the best way to deal with real winter is to face it head on. We were out skiing again today, starting from our driveway and skiing a block to the end of the road and on into a wooded wetland along the river--forging a trail as we go. It's like having our own private woods through an uncharted snowy Narnia, no one anywhere in sight.
