Snow on the windowpane

Today was the start of the bliz­zard ’round these parts. I took this pho­to of the lacy snow on my front pic­ture win­dow at about 1:20 PM, after I’d shov­eled the walk for a sec­ond time.

The snow keeps com­ing, but not as bad here as oth­er places; I’d be hap­py, though, if the wind would just die down a bit. I guess that’s what I get for liv­ing on the prairie.

Cemetery critters

My bike ride took me down to the grave­yard yes­ter­day, and I saw some wildlife there.

I’m amazed, frankly, at how long these flow­ers have lasted.
