Thank you so much for this brilliant report. I have really enjoyed the photos, and if my internet gets going I will watch that video of yours on digging out. (I love plowing snow, so I will get an extra kick out of that...)
Just to juxtapose your experience with my own. I am in Afghanistan right now, and this past week we have gotten temperatures in and around 50c (120F)
It is amazing to think that someone out there is getting as cold as you are right now, when I am as hot as I am right now.
Well enjoy your trip, and thanks much for sharing the video.
