Imagine my surprise when I encountered this scene while photographing valuable antiques for a client.

It is good there is very little wind today! It is cold! If the wind were howling—as it often does—the chill factor would be cryogenic, certainly! The exterior temperature display in Mr. Nitro showed the outside temperature to be a mere 34° at 7 AM this morning, as I drove to my office! Apparently, it was colder yet earlier, since a patina of rime glittered upon Mr. Nitro's hood! The sun is shining brightly, so (unless the wind increases significantly) it should soon be warm.
