Portland cold snap! Frosty mornings make you feel alive. And very dark, foggy nights make the world seem new and peculiar. Like, I drove home from Commonwealth late last night through the deepest foggy soup. Traffic lights hovered inside vapor halos and the streets—even right near my house—looked spooky and unfamiliar. I went inside and turned the heat on, but I left the lights low and peered out the window at the ghostly night.
