Extreme Cold Warnings and Natural Dye: McCreary, Manitoba

Extreme Cold Warning: Clear. Increasing cloudiness overnight. Wind north 20km/h light early this evening. Low minus 31c.Wind chill near minus 41c. Frostbite in minutes.

Taking an ice drive to McCreary Manitoba to facilitate a natural dye workshop. I had to put the supplies in the back seat of the car so the supplies didn’t freeze in the trunk. The car coughs when you start the engine. My hands were smoking from the moisture on my skin condensing.

There is a beauty in the starkness of extreme cold. The light looks different, and everything is dry.
