Can You Believe It
It was supposed to be better, and it was supposed to be worse.
Welcome to the end of October and early November.
The forecasts, cloud prediction maps, and satellite images were all very... Not good. And then to the north, in the early evening came a big, beautiful, bright opening of clear sky all the way down to the horizon. Of course, nothing the last four or five nights has come very easily over a thousand kilometres of driving to find the aurora pushing through the cloud, while the other nights were more about just momentary pockets of stars. This night of quiet conditions until late, and quick few kilometre relocations to keep under stars felt pretty peaceful all in all.
