St. Croix River

A winter walk along the beautiful St. Croix River. The weather in our small town has been up and down, hot and cold, snowing, and melting. We do not have the 8 - 10 feet of snow we had at this time last year - there may be 3-4 feet. There have been many days of afternoon lunches out on the deck and warm enough for shirtsleeves. 
We had a beautiful December and January with quite warm temps and little or no snow. H-m-m-m, makes me wonder about the -22 weather I woke up to this morning. A north wind made it much colder, however; dressed warm one can still enjoy a nice long walk on a bitter cold day.
FN - Photos taken 1 day prior to rapid change in temps again;  Hurricane Winds and Torrential Downpours - result- all that glistening ice and white snow has for the most part disappeared. H--m-m-m

Your pictures show that it's a beautiful place to live. That current cold doesn't sound wonderful, though! Love your post! :-)

That was a quick chance!

Beautiful place to see and be.

These shots make one think it is not so cold up there. They are so pretty. I wonder how many people cone and leisurely sit in that gazebo? I would think on this day it would have been used a good bit. Buddy told me today that Nova Scotia had invited any Americans who wanted to move there if Trump was elected were welcomed. That’s a new take on invitations.

Such a beautiful deep blue against the snow. I'm sure you are sad to see it gone. That is quite a variation in temperatures!

It is a strange winter everywhere.. To warm, to much winds and rains. We didn't see any ice or snow here.

What a winter this has been everywhere. We’ve hardly even had frost, although the rain has been more or less a permanent feature. There’s a bit of sunshine today, hurray!

A negative 22...now, that is COLD...BRRRRRRRR. I would not be sitting beside the water for sure. I wonder how many people will be leaving for Novia Scotia with the possibility of this kind of weather...hehehe. Your photos are so purdy.
