It is feeling like a good old-fashioned winter. Snow is on the ground and the temperature has remained cold. I wear layers as I go out and so far have not minded the cold. And when the sun shines in winter, the snow makes everything ultra bright.
The sky never seems quite as blue as a winter sky.
Even shadows take on the blue of the sky.
The squirrels are still out in numbers, scavenging what they can. This "squirrel snack bar" made this fellow happy.
City workers were out preparing the ice - an outdoor rink. With frigid temperatures expected, this rink will have no trouble keeping its hard surface.
Temperatures are in celsius. As a reference point -18°C is 0°F. I'll be putting on an extra layer and going out to enjoy the sunshine.
