It is nice to have a January thaw. This picture was taken during the winter of 2011. I don’t want anyone to forget what winter looks like.
This scene is just so January.
Winter can be beautiful even when it is still fall. It will be above freezing today. Go out and enjoy. I need to walk an extra 8 miles today to make up for the weekend.
Some people watch others skate and some people take photos of people watching people skate. There is skating in downtown St. Paul at the Landmark Center across the street from Rice Park. There is a warming house and skate rental too.
We need to start getting ready for a cold and snowy winter at least according to the folk at Farmer’s almanac. As you can probably tell it was below zero when I took this photo.
The footbridge that the people are standing on is on Raspberry Island on the Mississippi River across the river from downtown St. Paul. Winter is beautiful . . . once the temperature gets above zero . .
