Snowed In

The frigid temps have relented just a bit --- or at least the winds have died down. I can handle the cold air temperature; it's the prairie wind that is the real killer. As the temperature rose today, the snow started to come down.

Scooter is still trying to figure the snow out. It's the first significant accumulation he's experienced, and it's that dry fluffy stuff. He's spent the better part of the day romping around in it. Reminds me of when I was a kid.

Speaking of kids, note the blue plastic kiddie wading pool (foreground of photo above) that's basically buried in snow. In the spring/summer/fall, the ducks use that for swimming and bathing.

This is the view looking north from outside my office. Just like being back in their native Iceland for these guys:
