We added a few more inches of snow to our winter wonderland over the weekend. One of the crazy things about living here is that the snow stays around. It does not blow because there is no wind (Thank goodness. This prairie girl definitely does not miss the wind!). It does not melt because, well, let's be honest: it's freezing cold here and the sun isn't in the sky long enough to melt anything. The snow stays pretty much where it lands for months. My friend R says we live in a snow globe. I tend to agree.
These pictures were taken at a waterfowl refuge here in the city.
