Snowy Cat Tails

We are experiencing a very long cold snap here in the "Great White North."

We had an unusually warm January but February has given us a bit of a shock with an extended period of negative double digit temperatures (in degree Celsius.)

News agencies are calling it a "Polar Vortex" but I am just calling it a typical Canadian winter.

This picture of a local pond was taken early December 2018 when it was warm enough to take a walk without risk of losing your fingers or nose and a fresh coat of snow had fallen. These cat tails are also waiting for spring and the warmer weather it promises.

Yesterday was a nice day to talk a walk in the park. So took a morning stroll at the Calgary Zoo.

Couldn't resist taking a picture of this little guy checking out the spectators behind the glass.

I think he saw me.
