Winter in Two Harbors

When none of my kids jumped at the chance to go grocery shopping with me recently, I happily shopped alone.  I brought my camera with, as it was about 10 degrees outside, certainly warmer than most of the month of January. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.

In the Backyard

Last year at this time, we didn't have any snow on the ground. This year, we have piles of snow.  We're finally out of the frigid below zero temperatures that started the year, and the kids have been thrilled to finally be able to play outside. While I haven't gone out to take photos of sunrises, I have looked around the backyard for interesting things to photograph.

January 4, it was only about 10 degrees, but we had some snow cleanup to do, and the kids were itching to get outside:

With so much snow so early, we bought a little snowblower to help blow out the driveway.  I think we've almost got our money's worth already.

I like the curve of the branches

If you look closely, you can see the snowmobiler through the trees

We won't be grilling for awhile!

When it's cold outside, the sun makes it feel much better

As I look out my window and see piles of snow, I'm longing for the warm days of summer.
