It was -20 degrees outside when I woke up this morning. I wasn't sure whether I had ever experienced such a temperature, so I ran downstairs in my pajamas and opened the door to see how long I could stand it. It made me gasp. It really hurt.

They tell us cold, like darkness, is the absence of something and not a thing in itself, but I felt the physical reality of coldness, I felt it get all the way inside of me, and now, wrapped in a blanket and sipping coffee, I am trying to warm myself back up.
