This is a cardinal, a year round resident here. The redbird of happiness.
So what if it's snowing and it's -15 C.?
I cannot describe how cold it is here. Day after day. Annie has a fur coat. She loves the snow. She is so happy running in the snow. It makes freezing and trying to take photos of a dark object moving very fast over brilliant white snow a lot more fun.
There are lots of places to get warm. These heaters are tall so kids pull up a chair and stand with their hands stretched out. A kind of Canadian religious experience.
As part of the general winter festivities, Gordon Halloran has an installation of his ice art. People wanted to lick it.
I am learning the Way of Ice. Here today, gone tomorrow. This was yesterday.
