[Dried up - and very cold - milkweed as seen from the walking path at noon.]
Despite plenty of cold dog walks lately, I couldn't resist a mid-day walk in the cold (9 degree) sun. As an added benefit, there was hardly any wind.
[More dried up plants peeking out of the snow. Off to the right you see one of many large piles of snow. The land in the middle of the walking path is the dumping ground for the snow removed from our various parking lots. It's quite a pile already.]
