Baby It's Cold Outside ...

After the blizzard, it's cold and bright and still and beautiful. Cold enough that there are sun dogs! And the air is doing that thing it does for me ... it's full of ice crystals, dancing around. And the snow makes a sound like walking on thin styrofoam with wet feet.

The luxury of knowing I don't have to go out in it and knowing it's going to be short-lived make it enjoying this kind of weather much easier.

Pretty little fort near the APs house, built igloo-style with shaped snow blocks.
