Over night the skies cleared and when I went out to get the last armful of firewood before going to bed, the stars of Orion’s belt were twinkling in the dark sky. With the clear skies came the cold, and this morning when we awoke it was -20C (-4F).
Over the years I have noticed that whenever the temperatures get below -15C that our double glazed windows start to get moisture condensing along the edges. When it gets colder than that the condensation freezes.
When I walked around the pond with Skye, the low sun was just hitting the top of the fir trees that grow below the bluffs, upslope from our house.
