With wind chill figured into the equation, it was -15F today, too punishing to photograph above Bond Falls, on the middle branch of the Ontonagon, where we intended to go. Instead, stayed at home, cooked, had my friend, Eve (and her Australian Shepard-Shakley) over for coffee and a morning visit, cleaned the farmhouse, grocery shopped, snow-blowed the drive, tended to both fires, and all the other mundane activities of daily living. This damn pink eye has now migrated to the other eye-some nasty stuff. My six month cancer check up and full body CT is scheduled tomorrow at Marshfield Clinic in Minocqua. Keeping my fingers crossed.
