The sun is shining brightly, and it's very cold. I have large picture windows (facing east and south, respectively) in the bedroom and living room.
Now, the wind has picked up and is blowing the snow in gusts and eddies, swirling through the air.
It looks like a mica globe out there
When the sun is shining in, I have to turn off the heat and crack the window. This effect ends immediately when the light shifts.
Man, those windows are gonna make this place hot in summer.
After living out West, and then moving back to New England, I have come to a new understanding of why most Americans don't eat much produce. Specifically, the fruit and vegetables here, even in the dead of winter, are so much better than anything in Las Vegas.
