Chilly Churchill

I flew north from Winnipeg over snow covered ground. We passed beside South Indian Lake as the sun set. Lights flickered near the Missi Falls before darkness set it.

A faint glimpse of Hudson Bay, Churchill

After landing, the two other passengers plus the crew were greeted with a -35 degree night. I whipped out a second coat and a touque as soon as I got inside the airport building ready for when I stepped outside into the hotel bus. The driver took the road at a slow pace due to the icy conditions.

The day before, the temperature had dropped, Hudson Bay iced over, sending the polar bears out hunting.
