Winter Thaw

I’ve got a backlog of blog topics to cover and meant to get to this sooner today, but too much to do, too little time so I’m going for the easy and the visual this evening.

Over the weekend, we experienced temps in the 40s, which is unusual for Minnesota in January. This is the point at which winter typically reaches its stride and we’re all going a little stir-crazy because we’ve been cooped up for too long. When there’s an unseasonable January thaw, you can bet we’re out enjoying it.

I took a couple of longer walks with the pup and shot some pics of him, the scenery, and ice formations on our front steps. Here are a few of my photos.
