Today’s post features some of My Town’s best scenery. I’ve shown them several times before, but I don’t think I’ve done so when they’ve been frozen. If I have shown them in that state, then I don’t think I’ve shown them frozen on such a sunny day and with lots of snow cover. If I HAVE shown them in a frozen state on a sunny day with lots of snow cover, please forgive me for repeating myself.
I felt some urgency today, because last night might be the last of our below-zero weather, and starting tomorrow we’re looking at a week of ABOVE-FREEZING temperatures. In other words, our frozen splendor might soon be slowly disappearing.
Before I get to the beautiful scenery, I do want to display my latest work of art. Yesterday’s trip among the ice sculptures of downtown MY Town inspired me to create my own Valentine-themed ice sculpture for The Feeshko. She was almost overwhelmed.
One thing I learned it that ice sculpting is harder than it looks. Another thing I learned is that ice from an ice cube tray is not as clear as the ice used by real ice sculptors.
Let’s move on to MY Town’s scenic hotspots. (In this case, scenic coldspots.)
I checked the “monthly challenge” box when I started this post because I did actually run into a couple of potential hazards. I’ll discuss those hazards in the next two pictures and a video.
Moving on to the Mississippi River. I’m sure I’ve made it clear that I love the USA’s largest river system. I love it in all seasons. Unfortunately, I haven’t been down there during our two-week long cold spell. That situation changed today. River. Ice. Snow. Bridge. Sky. Bike.
