But what I see out the window looks like white snow.
Lots of white snow.

It feels more like Winter with the cold wave that has been dropping down out of Canada, but it's still pretty dry and snowless around the Twin Cities area in MN. Check out these photos from my area.

Not going to be very active today. Been feeling under the weather the last few days and yesterday started to run a fever. It peeked at 101.3 last night, but still maintaining at 100.5 even with the fever reducers.

Just got a call from my son that he is stuck in traffic coming home because we started getting snow around 3pm and the roads are now glare ice.

What a strange Winter we are having this season.
