After last week's too-short glimpse of spring, winter has come back with a vengeance. Brisk, cold winds, blizzards, ice fishermen back out on the frozen lake, and bundling up again. The good news is that the snow is fresh and packable (read: snowmen!).

 

Here are some photos of spring on my parents farm, to help with the chill of winter.
