The aurora borealis was not visible last night. The temperature was down to 8º with lots of wind when I got up at 3 a.m. to reload the wood stove, so I was just as glad not to be going outside for a better look at the sky.
However, the angel Gabriel made an appearance this morning on the glass door of my wood stove. That was almost as good as seeing the northern lights. An Elvis sighting would have been most excellent, but hey, a visit from Gabe was pretty cool, too.
