It's a beautiful sunny Sunday in Iqaluit, and Spring is right around the corner. So this is the time of the year where Iqaluit really starts to glow. All that white snow, coupled with plenty of daylight...it's a nice mix.
Pity it's -37C with windchill today. Just took Boo for a walk. We both decided after five minutes we were done with being outside. It's beautiful outside, it's just much warmer to look at it through a window.
Case in point...
It's also much warmer in the sunspot while lying on a couch than lying on the snow outside.
The downside to being inside is that when certain people are in the mood to pick and poke and comb out some mats there's no where to run.
Although most of our attention is out the front window and looking out the bay, occasionally you do see cool things looking out our back window. Birds other than ravens offer me home that perhaps winter might ease up (let's not get crazy and talk about spring yet) at some point in the next couple of weeks.
This is actually from a week or so ago. I was just surprised to see a hare in town. I'm sure it happens, but it's the first time I've seen one. Most non-avian wildlife give Iqaluit a reasonably wide berth, what with their being so many ways to die and all...
