Anonther Week, More Snow

Sunday, February 23, 2014. Going through some picture files, I found this sunset: from November 24, 2013.

A sunset from last year. November 24, 2013.

We've had another winter storm, and more snow. It's picturesque, but I won't mind seeing green grass again.

This week's Sauk Centre Herald posted an article about Joe Frericks, John Metcalf and Joe Deters, who are retiring from the Sauk Centre Fire Department: "Hanging up their hats," Bryan Zollman, Sauk Centre Herald. (February 21, 2014)

That's all I've got for this week.

New Places, and Shoveling the Roof

Sunday, February 16, 2014. I still haven't been in La Central Market and Isabella Boutique, unless you count their website: I did get a photo of the storefront, though. It's where Corner Drug used to be.

New-to-me: Elmerz, west of Walmart. February 12, 2014.

We've had quite a bit of snow this winter. It's scenic, but means more work for folks with sidewalks, driveways, parking lots: and, in some cases, roofs.

ElmerZ restaurant and bar opened recently. It's whereGerard's used to be. The Sauk Centre Herald did a pretty good writeup on the new place: "Zimmer family to reopen popular establishment," Sauk Centre Herald. (November 8, 2013)

New Mexican Meat Market and Clothing Boutique in Sauk Centre — Also Snow

Sunday, February 9, 2014. Today was a warm day, compared to much of this winter. The high was zero Fahrenheit, about -18 Celsius.

It's been a good year for snowmen. February 9, 2014.

There's a new business downtown: La Central Market and Isabella Boutique, a Mexican meat market and fashion boutique at the corner of Sinclair Lewis Avenue and Main. They've got a pretty good website:

I haven't been inside: partly because I haven't been outside much in the last few weeks.

Sunlight and Snow

Sunday, February 2, 2014. I wonder if anyone's made a calendar with "caution: forgetting Valentine's Day may be hazardous to your health" printed on February 14?

Then on March 9, Daylight Savings Time starts. I suppose we can be thankful that we're not required by law to get up at two in the morning to change our clocks.

Staying inside and not getting any cooler than necessary didn't keep me from getting a few photos of this winter's snow. Shoveling the stuff isn't much fun: but I like the way it looks.

Snow around the grill will melt, eventually. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the view. January 28, 2014.

Sunlight, clear sky, and shadows on the snow. February 2, 2014.

That's all I've got for this week. Next week there'll be more. That's the plan, anyway.
