ABC WEDNESDAY "Z"=ZERO


This is what happens when the temperature dips below ZERO: the snow remains and ice forms (check yesterday's post for a photo of frozen water at Minnehaha Falls). Neither ice nor snow goes away. In the summer we often come to this park and eat delicious meals at an outdoor restaurant called Sea Salt. Without warm temperatures, umbrellas to shield us from the sun and good food to eat, I do not feel very ZIPPY with vim, vigor, or zip to my walk.

IMP: I'm without a computer again for awhile and will have to use the library.  Long ugly story...don't ask! I do have something scheduled for the 15th so after that, who knows!!

  7. You're awfully good tempered with so many 'situations' to deal with. And your eye has not failed you in this image which is intriguing in the portal and so satisfying up close and personal.

  13. Zero is popular today - and with good reason. I see that you have very good reasons for staying indoors. Pity about the, PC though.

  14. My sympathies on the computer Kate!!! One of the reasons I decided to go Mac!!! (which opened up a whole different set of issues as in internet connectivity re: home network, etc...)

  15. Very nice shot! I like the snow contrasting the tables. But I certainly wouldn't like to be sitting out there!!

    Hope your computer troubles get sorted out. My camera should be on its way home any day now. :D
    Did you have any luck with the spaetzle press? Maybe you could try a potato ricer as an ersatz?
