deer run

Most of our snow melted, but in true Illinois form I think the cold is here for the duration. We had a high of 12f today.
I spotted this on my way to town this afternoon... the field across from the house.

Yesterdays blizzard brought with it frigid cold(+14f @ 1:35pm).. on the plus side, the winds are calm and we have plenty of sunshine.
The horses actually ventured away from the shed. Of course as soon as they spotted me they were on a dead run. From zero to 60... in 2.5 seconds!

first snow

2 days ago we had our first snow, it was so nice and pretty, giving the world that fresh clean look. Thats when I took these pictures.
Today it's quite a bit more hostile out there, bitter cold with blizzard conditions ...40mph winds. All that pretty snow is moving very quickly straight East.
And subzero temperatures are predicted for the next few days.
yeehaw! Happy Winter!
