Unusual Usual Views
Yesterday I went for a walk along the river. When I came out of the door of my building and crossed the street, the icicle took my eye because I realized it was the first time this whole winter that I've seen any icicles.
Today the wind was very cold, but the sun kept coming out of the clouds. I picked up my older daughter to stay with me for the weekend. About 4:30 she pointed out the window and here's what we saw.
We've had so little snow this winter that this usual view is quite unusual.
Just before it really got dark I noticed how pretty were the rooftops on the bluff.
The quick snow made the roofs look gingerbread houses with white icing on top.
