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?

Ms. Dean,
Happy Valentine's Day!!
We checked Google Maps and found that the lake you saw from The Pas was Lake Winnipeg. It was BIG!
Take care,
Mr. Garrett's Homeroom
