10:17pm on Saturday night, the phone rang. Kyle and I looked at each other quizically, thinking “Who in the world is calling this late at night?”
It was our friend Karis, calling to say that the Northern Lights were out.
We threw snowpants and parkas on over our pajamas, hopped on the snowmachine and drove a little ways out of town. As we stopped in a clearing, I took off my goggles, looked up, and said “wow!” They are quite gorgeous!
