Winter arrived with a vengeance here in Minnesota today (and elsewhere as well I hear). We went from relatively mild temps and NO snow to near-blizzard conditions overnight. It is cold, cold, cold. Here in the metro area we got about 5-6" of snow, but just a bit further south there was much more snow. Tonight the snow is done falling, but the wind is blowing the white stuff around. Don't even talk about windchill. Brr. It was bound to happen I guess.
I'm a wimp when it comes to winter driving, so I took the bus to and from work. I drudged through the nearby Christmas tree lot on the way home. After a quick bite to eat (a very late lunch), I headed to the studio to do a little "work" (more like play in my book). It was a welcome reward for getting through a tiring day. The weather outside inspired me to do some more work on my whimsical winter paintings. In fact I felt inspired to start a new bigger piece that hopefully I can finish for a "Winter Carnival" inspired exhibition that will open next month.
Time for bed...tomorrow's just another day in this winter wonderland.
