I wore my parka yesterday.

I did. And it wasn't even the first time this aurora season. But I did wait until I saw my neighbours out for a walk wearing theirs last week before I took mine out.  

It started at feeling a little chill in the air loading up the car at 8pm, although being in shorts, a t-shirt, and flip-flops may have had something to do with it, and it ended at -5° many hours later with iced over camera equipment. 'tis the season, indeed.
