Walkin' in a winter wonderland...
It is definitely a winter wonderland here in northern Minnesota. The snowstorm is over and I’m enjoying a day off school. I woke up to bright sunshine and a beautiful, clear blue sky. Perfect for picture taking I thought. Now to battle the cold. I laced up my boots and trudged through the fluffy snow, in drifts over my knees. My eyes were watering because of the cold, bright day, and my tears started to freeze! The fresh air felt good, though. It’s so beautiful with the sun beaming down and making everything glisten like diamonds. It looks like a scene from a Christmas card.
Some things I experienced while outside for a few minutes:
The chickadees were at the feeder again,
storing up food for insulation against
the cold, -10 degree weather.
The bright sun created beautiful shadows
stretching across the blanket of untouched snow.
My mom was busy shoveling snow around the house,
and I caught her having fun... no explanation necessary.
Beautiful ripples in the snow were evidence
of the wind from this storm.
