Hope the highway looks better than this

14 degrees (-10C) and I think it is below the point where the de-icers stop working. This is a main street, not a side street! (Portage Ave.) I waited at the light even though it changed to green - and guessed right, the pickup truck coming the other way couldn't stop, and spun lazily through the intersection.

View from Love Your Mother

A quick trip in to the downtown store "Love Your Mother" before she closed; a nice street scene, with ice.

Snowy little lighthouse

Scidmore Park's alternate lighthouse, with ducks. Cold duck?

Reaction to snow

Ah! snow in big puffy flakes made travel home last night hard. But the fire makes up for it...

At the edge of town

"Right against the forest-fence"... Still sunny but the wind is bitingly cold. No snow this morning as I head up for a day of tax training for my volunteer non-job with the Tax-Aide people.

Another beautiful day, but it is getting colder.

Waiting for snow

Must be the famous January Thaw. A walk in the park revealed the sad sight of tubes on the tubing hill - no snow. Just grass.
