This morning felt the like the coldest morning so far this winter. It’s crystal clear out, but there is a howling wind that blew through the night. My ears got so cold waiting for the train this morning that they started to hurt (I didn’t have a hat). That is an indication of just how cold it was. There was no ice on the car this morning, mainly because the air is so dry due to the wind.
Surprisingly, however, the Potomic river has still not frozen over yet this winter. It first froze over last winter on December 28, but it was a roiling and stormy last night and relatively placid this morning.
