I can’t believe it

I locked my keys in the house. I can’t remember ever doing that before.

This did however force me to leave my bike at home and go for a long walk through the freezing rain to a friend’s and back, giving me much time to watch the streetlights filter through the layers of ice coating every twig of every tree. Very pretty … it reminds me of being in Ottawa during the ice storms of 1998, one of the more incredible shows of force by nature I have yet to see.
