The world is iced with cloud and snow

The flight to Chicago just clipped the bottom of Greenland and the cloud cleared for me to see mountains buried up to their waists in thick deep snow, rippled glaciers and once what I think was a glacier under the snow, ridges breaking the smooth surface. Then the cloud closed in, thick and white as the snow with ridges of clouds poking out like more mountains.

Am ensconsed in a nearly circular room with a city view showing the tips of five skyscrapers over the trees (foreground, the car park).
