Welcome to a sunless somewhat snowy but always friendly quaint little river town of Stillwater, Minnesota and all its winter glory downtown.
"My life is like a stroll upon the beach,
as near to the ocean's edge as I can go."
Henry David Thoreau
Wait, no it's more like, "I pray this winter be gentle and kind, a season of rest from the wheel of the mind." John Geddes
and it's the St. Croix River and one of this year's snow sculptures. This is the second year of Stillwater's Snow Sculpture Contest.
Winter has arrived.
