Beautiful Sight (diary)

One day a couple weeks ago, it was cold and foggy.

I was taking the bus downtown, and I peered out the window, to find an incredible sight.

With snow on the ground and ice on the Ottawa River, and with a white foggy sky, it was impossible to see where the water ended and where the shore and the sky began. I could see the trees on the near side easily, but only faint shadows on the far side of the river; quite different from what you would see in a blizzard.

The image of the forest and hills on the opposite coast seeming to float in midair was absolutely spectacular and beautiful.

I thought I'd share it with you to keep it from being lost.
