The sun is starting to make appearances more often, but the last few days have been below zero degrees Fahrenheit. It’s hard to not be a little optimistic that warmth will soon return when the ice around me begins to melt away. My optimism was somewhat squelched by the subzero days that followed, but this week promises we will see temperatures rise above 30 degrees soon, even if it’s temporary it will be a ray of warmth in an otherwise very cold winter.
I’ve had an excellent conclusion to 2013, and it just so happens that I have the pictures to prove it.
