It is -28 C (-33 F) this morning in Schomberg. I planned to go again to visit with my Owl friend but I think I won't be able to be out for more than five minutes. When you add the wind chill factor it is -33 C. This image is from Wednesday.

Karl, Very nice image. I was once in the mountains in Alaska in the winter and the wind chill was -100 F. Luckily I had cover. Hope you stay in warm cover also.

Sometimes you just have to say - today I stay home! - especially when you already have such wonderful images of this beauty, Karl. This is a beautiful shot!
