Well, the difference a week and the COLD makes.
Up until just recently we've been super lucky with our 'winter' weather and it hadn't felt like winter AT ALL. Everyone was joking that maybe we had skipped the season and just jumped right into spring.
Well...winter has finally shown his cold, unpleasant face!
Do you remember the swans and all the pretty ducks that we on the lake across from Dad's house just last week?
There were these two:
And all these guys?
And mom's favorite, this guy?
Well...a little less then a week later and no waterbirds of any type are swimming around anymore!
It's been cold enough in just the past few days that the lake is already covered in a layer of ice.
Mom says she doesn't think anyone will be venturing out onto it for skating or anything just yet...but if these 20*F temps keep on, it won't be long until we can walk across the lake and not just around it.
