Desert Sliver Moon

The moon was a sliver in the Arizona desert at a quarter to seven this morning. My body clock is set on Eastern Time, so I had been up for a few hours and was motivated to step out into the 38 degree cold and snap a photo.

"It's pretty cold out, " Ed told me after he checked the air temperature, too. We both guessed it to be in the fifties while a thermometer told us high thirties.

Then we heard from A Wisconsin Native who sent this screenshot of the temperature in central Wisconsin. Eighteen below!

Well, all I can say that is encouraging is that the same moon that shines in the 38 degree desert is shining tonight in the cold air of Wisconsin.

It's winter, my friends. It is definitely winter.
