My Dear Students: Low Sun and Skinny Trees
I woke up this morning to a waning moon next to Venus and a sunrise that took hours and looks like it will culminate in a low noon. Snow is blowing up from beside the tracks and dusting skinny trees. Every once in a while there are surprizing open stretches of perfectly flat snow that must be ice. I have left my Atlas at home. Is there anyone who can find Cormorant, between The Pas and Thompson, Manitoba on a map for me and tell me what body of water I’m looking at?
