December is the New October

But let's keep that at an inside voice volume.

A guest mentioned there was a rumour of the Dettah ice road opening this weekend.

Wait, what? When did winter happen?

We drive through the countryside at -16° until we reach clear skies and only then does the temperature drop a further 10 degrees. But -26° isn't winter, it's October. And for weeks, running from cloud almost every single night, to find very good auroral activity dancing in isolated clear skies feels a lot more like October.

I've never watched Orange Is the New Black, but I can tell you, December is the new October, and I can rip off a TV show for a blog post title every now and then.
