Looking out the airplane window, through the broken clouds,I see Icebergs. First a few, then several. It looks cold.
The P.A. crackles and informs us of the encroaching land. So I lift my tray table, put my seat up and zip-up my jacket.
On land, it is cold and windy. A fresh dusting of snow covered much of the black, cracked, frozen, mossy, treeless volcanic island-scape. On goes the puffy.
So cold even the trees wear sweaters.
