I bought some flowers. Partly to take photos of them. Wednesday-- Big storm hits. 40 mph winds, 14 inches snow, whiteout. Brother Don was stranded over 12 hours on interstate 94, on his way in to work. Over 2000 vehicles stranded or abandoned. I was getting a new windshield.
Could not see my way out of Menards parking lot. Did get home before rush hour!
People woke up Thursday morning to this...
Should be 10 below friday. Plus windchill.

Flowers in Winter.
A church near Belleville, Its a snowy Saturday. We will end up with a couple inches. Notice the round steeple.
Near New Glarus. Known as the little switzerland. There is a pub from 1850's there, Chili and Braunshweiger sandwich for 5 bucks. Could make it a Chicken Salad sandwich. Local Microbrew on tap. Nearby is a bakery and a chocolate/cheese shoppe.
Tree outfit dropping a big oak near a house. Notice the hollow logs, that tree was dead for some time. Even with a 24 in chainsaw, that tree was 3 feet through.
A Truss railroad bridge, in Belleville. River still open, but just barely.
Some down trees in the conservancy in Middleton. Another of Nature's Compositions.
