Return to Chiberia

Return to Chiberia

The Lake is steaming, and  it’s a sunny subzero morning in  Chiberia.  Some may remember the polar vortex days of 2014, when the frozen towers  sparkled in the sun, and -40 wind chills greeted the huddled masses waiting on the train platforms. What a time to be alive! If you’re asking yourself, why do I still live here, think of the Christmas Eve snow a few days ago, how magical it was. There’s beauty in Chiberia, too. Here’s  a post about it.

Of course, Chiberians are experts at dressing for this  weather. They are masters of layering. Need some inspiration?  Here’s a post for you.  And here’s more fashion advice from the National Weather Service–

Meanwhile, there is a little more light each day now after the winter solstice. The nights are clear and crisp, and the quarter moon last night was breathtaking.

The next full moon will be on January 1.  What a way to start the new year!

  • When the temperature drops
    And it's cold like the dickens,
    One should dress up in layers,
    Of clothes, and not chickens.

    Good one, AW! Cheers!

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    I agree, that's a good one. Layers of chickens would freeze too quickly!

    Well, they say that goose down parkas are very warm...

  • The only difference seems to be that in 2014 it was every Monday through April, while the forecasts for this spell keep going down and lasting for two weeks without relief.

  • In reply to jack:

    Good point, Jack. The cold spell seems to be a little less extreme, but longer lasting...

  • It's beginning to look a lot like.... um, COLD! Thanks for the post.
