Today the temperature was palpably cold but the day was clear. Much of the American northeast is facing a blizzard tonight. The forecast here, though, is that Saturday will be close to warm, a single-day respite from a cold week.

During lunch today, I saw an American kestrel, a killdeer, and two great blue herons flying at shoulder-height.

We got cute thank-you notes from young gift recipients in my wife's family. I won an eBay auction. I like 2014 already.
