Dark Four In Cascadia

Daily notes from a plague winter

November 30th

Rain is back this morning. Grey day full of low clouds and a chill wind. This weekend we started talking about snow birding. A February trip. Phoenix, Tucson, or maybe Las Cruces. Something away from the grey, somewhere with a pool where I can swim, somewhere the sun can start doing its magic a few weeks earlier than usual.

Weighing this against the dangers. The only thing worse than getting sick would be getting sick while 19 hours from home by car. The only thing worse than being cozy and miserable at home could be being miserable and not ourselves somewhere else.

Sun came out for 20 minutes this afternoon. Then there was a hail storm.
