Prairie Winter

Back in the fall I promised some prairie pictures in winter. Winter can be beautiful. Not today.
And I didn't take the picture today.

Today was an indoor day. We don't have snow days here. If we did we'd be indoors the majority of the year. Snow and cold are normal and you just limp along in your car on square tires and carry on. But every once in awhile it gets what I call scary cold and today was it - an indoor day. Tomorrow it's back to normal but I'll haul out the backup mitts!

But on days that aren't quite so cold the prairie is beautiful. There's nothing more beautiful than virgin snow on a cloudless winter day. And while, I didn't snag one of those pictures. Here's just a regular prairie winter.

With just a bit of Eva and Tate's valley thrown in for good measure.

The new homepage for has rather a warm glow to it, doesn't it? Picture was taken at the Shwedagon Pagoda in Rangoon, Burma - it's coated with gold. And - the temperature, much warmer than the here and now.
