It's cold today. So cold that the snow squeaks when I walk on it and my breath is like twin geysers of steam. Everypony I saw was trotting by fast while hunched in their horse blankets, scarves and saddles, trying to get quickly to somewhere warm. I could feel the pinch of the cold on my flanks right through my cloak and my hooves were like blocks of ice. I was still shivering for quite a while after I got back inside. All three of us at the castle are spending a lot of time warming our flanks by the fire in the sitting room. There is even frost on the inside of the window panes.
