Well what is a little more snow..we still have room for taller snow banks.
We went for a ride..Cabin Fever..that old in the middle of the winter feeling..do something even if it is wrong.
We looked for animal tracks..the snow plow had gone on many of the roads obliterating the tracks. The most exciting thing we saw was a jet trail underlining the moon.
This is a Norway Pine, Pinus resinosa, it is the State Tree of Minnesota. In other States it would be called a Red Pine, here in Minnesota where we do things our own way and make up our own rules..because it is so cold we call it a Norway Pine.
What else do we do to ward off Cabin Fever? We watch Fighting Sioux Hockey ..last night it was the University of North Dakota Sioux vs. the Minnesota Gophers..Friday night it was much more interesting because there were lots of fist-de-cuffs..and shoving. I heard that one dead animal type gopher made it out on the ice..it used to be a tradition that the Sioux Fans would throw them out..not so much anymore. I wonder how many gophers were confiscated by security? Far Guy and I both watch from our respective couches. I nap in-between fights and goals, Chance lays by me since I will scratch his back until I nod off. If Far Guy gets excited and jumps up off the couch, Chance is immediately awake and ready to go leaving me in the dust.
Uffda..Ubetcha..things are really exciting up here in the frozen tundra of Minnesota:)
