“Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. …”

Luckily, I get a 4-wheel drive truck; driving to #Duluth on icy highway not exactly in my skill zone. Getting passed by 18-wheelers going 65 mph. Am now in #grandmarais, doing presentation on new book Small Homes tonight, 7 pm at #northhousefolkschool in Grand Marais. This pic on way into town from Pincushion Trails Inn this am. 13 degrees. It gets down to -20 here, and that’s not with wind chill…

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire, 

Some say in ice. 

From what I’ve tasted of desire 

I hold with those who favor fire. 

But if it had to perish twice, 

I think I know enough of hate 

To say that for destruction ice 

Is also great 

And would suffice.
