Winter--you gotta love it!

One thing to count on in a Minnesota winter, besides a lot of snow, is a bright blue sky a few days each week. Two sky views here are both of frigid water. Speaking of snow, the levels in the Twin Cities is currently 53.9 inches (and counting).
The pic below is a view down my street toward the lake, also frozen and usually dotted with fish houses. Note my mailbox up to its neck in drifts.
I recommend visiting SkyWatch Friday for more seasonal skies.

I love seeing the blue skies. We in Ontario cannot count on them in January...but we should have quite a few next month. :))

We're just now getting our 2nd snow of the season right now as I type measuring about 3 inches so far, which is unusual for around here... it usually passes us by! The 1st snow only lasted a few hours, then melted! =(

Great sky shots, love all that blue!!! =)

Great photo! Both beautiful wintery scenes. You have more snow than we do, but at least you get that blue sky.

There have to be compensations for months of cold, deep snow and your photos have shown some of them. It just looks so beautiful and serene.
(I agree with you about the full moon - it was splendid :-))

Very lovely shots! By the way I just saw on tv that some part of Minnesota has -41F, that is so cold. Happy weekend and keep warm.
