Well, this isn't a black and white photo!The ice is advancing, and the days are short and dark - not my favorite time of year. But as the saying goes, "If you don't find joy in the snow, you will have less joy, but the same amount of snow."
The lake is full of water fowl this year. Two more swans joined the five that have been on the lake for several weeks now. All the geese and swans have been feeding on the water weeds, and we have hopes they can seriously make a dent in the weeds. We're also hoping they can still find open water as the bitter cold continues for a couple of more days. By Christmas, we should be back to 50 degrees, but it was 12 degrees this morning.
