I hesitate to say it's cold here (23F/-5C). After living in Iowa and Colorado, I know what cold is, and cold is below zero, not just below freezing. That being said...it's cold here this morning! But what makes it special is the frozen fog that has etched everything with ice crystals. I'm a outdoors kind of girl and I know that the weather always looks worse when you're inside looking out at it; once you're out in it, it's usually okay. However, I hesitated to take our morning walk despite the pleading look in Lucie's big brown eyes. The reward for braving the chilly air, though, was some pretty photos....and a happy doggie!
