Spring break in Minnesota

On Monday, it was 29 degrees Fahrenheit out when I left for work in the morning; perhaps two inches of snow had fallen the night before.  It got steadily colder all day.  Tuesday night, the low was 1 degree.  I told my students last semester that February was the worst month of winter.  It turns out that this was my mistake; I’ve just never before lived in a place where March wasn’t the end of winter.  Here are some photos from the fall and winter.

I take the same picture out my window over and over again.  This is the sun rising over St. Paul.

Not mine, luckily.  I particularly liked the icicles on the handlebars, but I didn't get a good picture of them.  12/12/12.
