Wintery

The year end brought us a wintery weather mix. It makes the world brighter and clean.
Snow, rain, more snow and below freezing temperatures brought a crusted snow cover to GriggsDakota. 
It was a pleasure to be out enjoying the snow and rain. 
The trees turned into sparkling fairy land. 
Butler was romping around like a puppy as he sniffed the snow covered ground. 
It makes finding his favorite sticks more challenging. 
The snowflakes were big and wet. They turned to water drops on my camera lens, but it still was able to capture the magic moment.
The wind came up, but the wet snow had settled and the cold temperatures crusted the top. 
 No BS, I mean blowing snow.
Although the wind did take the frosting off the trees. 
 We have been expecting this weather to arrive, but things didn't get as bad as predicted, once again. We hope the weather will cooperate for the Lake Region RoundUp which will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, January 3 and 4, 2012. Click on the link to see the schedule.
