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.
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.
