8:37 PM: cold as ice
3 snowfalls in one winter! yes! tonight the sky is clear and cold, the stars bursting & crystalline.
last night trixie had trouble getting home: there was someone walking in the middle of the road so i couldn't get enough speed to get up our icy hill. i ended up sliding backwards until one of the wheels got stuck off the road, at which point i could reverse, get my head facing the road, and slowly inch back down it. then i went the long way 'round, via ellis.
