It's been really cold for days and I'm getting rather tired of it. I can't seem to remember the last time I felt hot, like really hot. Outdoors the wind is like a live thing, nipping at your ears and biting you in the hocks and belly. When I go out, I've taken to wearing a horse blanket under my cloak and lining my boots with straw. I'm going out as little as possible and staying away from everypony else. I feel snappish. It must be the cold. Again I had that annoying dream about snow and wind blown snow. I think my hay is contaminated with chamomile and it's affecting my mind, especially my sleep. Applejack should know better than to sell hay contaminated with chamomile. It's a toxic weed. I'm cold and cranky. Fortunately, I haven't seen Spike or Starlight Glimmer all day. They seem to be keeping mostly to their rooms.

I received a letter from Princess Cadence and Shining Armor. They wrote that the wild weather north of the Crystal Empire is acting up. There are icy cold winds blowing right up to the city limits. A party of crystal ponies out for a stroll got caught in a gust and nearly froze to death. All along the horizon to the north there's a wall of dark wild clouds. Everypony in the Crystal Empire castle seems to be withdrawn and on edge, but so far the Crystal Heart is keeping the wild weather at bay.

I went out for a few minutes late this evening, well after dark. Less of a chance to bump into anypony then. The cloudless sky was inky black and the stars stood out like pinpricks, sharp and distant. There were no streams of light from the Crystal Empire. In fact, I don't recall seeing or feeling anything from the Crystal Heart since the Winter Festival ended.
