Cold and dark! It was cold (52 degrees) and dark when I journeyed to my office this morning. It was 6:30 AM. It was cold, and it was dark. It is 7 AM now, and it is still cold and dark! I loathe cold weather. I am wearing long trousers and shoes this morning. I do not enjoy traveling in darkness. I shall begin coming here a bit later in the day until the weather is warmer and the morning light arrives earlier. When you look for the morning's blog entry and do not find it, you will know I am hiding from the darkness and cold!
