We’ve had so many snow events here in Minnesota. Taking a tour on snowshoes today I saw few trails in the woods even squirrels sink in this light fluff. Deer, rabbit, fox and other non human tracks can be seen on shoveled trails even around house foundations as local wildlife take the path of least resistance during this year’s cold AND snowy winter.
This time of year our eyes gravitate to color as we grow weary of the muted grays and browns of winter. We’re gaining nearly two minutes with the sun rising a minute sooner and setting a minute later each day.
This subzero spell has closed schools, cancelled flights and turned most outdoor activities upside down. Our local airport looks like a backdrop for the movie Ice Station Zebra. Baby it’s cold outside!
