It Is Soooo.... Cold!

Hello Everyone...
The past two weeks have been bitterly cold and snowy here in Calgary. In fact, this morning, Springbank...which is about 5 minutes away from us out in the country registered a windchill of -49C which is -56F. It is bone-chilling! This was the 2nd coldest spot on earth...the 1st being the South Pole!! We are supposed to warm up to +1C...33.5F in a couple of days...that will feel like summer!
The first two pics are of the back and front trees...these were taken from inside last week...we got a lot more snow after these pics were taken...
















This pic was taken randomly out of my bedroom window...doesn't it kind
of look like a baby polar bear sleeping on a branch...not likely...but it was fun
to capture the shot.















Have a great day!
Nancy

Keep warm dear friend and sending the warmest hugs to you

I just wrote on this and couldn't get it to post, but I had to let you know how I love winter snow scenes like these. Thank you for them!

Hugs
