i remember being downstairs in our room at the bayside bed & breakfast, and poking my head out the door leading onto the porch every few minutes eager for what was out there. it was around 9:00pm, and finally through some clouds, a faint, faint, faint band in the sky appeared. jen called it at the exact same time as me. i felt like i wanted to run upstairs and get everyone, shout it into the neighbourhood that the northern lights were out! in the blink of our eyes, jen and i suited up, sort of, it was only -5 so far, and ran off our porch, jumped down the backyard onto great slave lake and ran across the runway as fast as we could. after we had a distant rendezvous with a fox on the runway, the clouds were pretty consistently blowing through, so it was a perfect time to hook up with an old friend of mine, and from there drove out to vee lake, about a half hour outside yellowknife, where we spent the rest of the night...
