I couldn't let this day go by without saying, how do you spell deep freeze? MINNESOTA. Oh, my! It's -25. Yes, that's the actual temp. Let's not talk about breezes today. Dreadfully cold and I hope if you're venturing out in cold, you'll take extra precautions. You never know when you'll wish you had a blanket in the car!
The first photo was taken on the Mississippi on an equally cold day. These swans have grown accustomed to staying in the area because the water coming from the nearby nuclear power plant keeps the temps a bit warmer. Otherwise, they'd be outa here!
I could barely see through the viewfinder...the wind was blowing and tears were streaming down my face - and darn near freeing in the process. But it was an amazing sight and suitable for such a very cold Minnesota day.
