Monday, March 8th

Today was a very windy and cold day. It snowed most of the morning. This is the kind of dry powdery snow that blows away with every wind gust. We may have gotten about 2 inches total. They are predicting more snow tonight and tomorrow. It will not even get above freezing until next weekend. In fact, the lows for the next few nights will be in the single digits, highs for the days in the 20s!!
We got these pictures as we walked to the Post Office this afternoon. Early this year there had been an ice sculpture exhibit. Probably about a dozen sculptures still stood. It is beautiful at night with the white lights still on the trees and colored lights illuminating the ice sculptures. One was called "Cornucopia of the Sea". Didn't get the names of the other sculptures. Two skaters were on the little ice skating rink. The city had created a neat little area there in one of its many city parks. They just added water to the little plaza and let it freeze to form a mini ice arena.
