Shot from Jan 13, high of -5°F. It even sounded cold out. The snow squeaks and the air seems too brittle to carry a breeze.
My sister, Maddie, walking across a field by our house.
First day of the St. Paul Winter Carnival ice sculpture contest. My favorite was “Survival,” which included this eagle with spread wings. Because the ice-art is displayed outdoors in Rice Park, security must be maintained 24-7. I talked with one guard (below) who told me his shift was 6pm-6am. This was his first night, he said, as last year they used a different company whose employees fell asleep on the job, enabling vandals to destroy several of the sculptures.
