Today I saw an ermine running along the snow bank. Duce saw it too, and he chased it through its tunnel in the snow and right up a cedar tree. I took a couple pictures, but he was so snowy white that he just looked like a snowball in the branches. Cute and quick little guy.
I did some more work on Fort Juniper today. My goal is to build up the north wall first since that is where the coldest winds blow from. It's coming along, all right. It was so nice to lay in there on such a windy day and not get pelted by what's blowing!
Other than that, I took a few wintery pictures yesterday that I thought you might enjoy.
Five inches of snow on Fanny Hooe. Looking toward East Bluff.
Compare this to the picture in "Skating Rink.")

Superior's shoreline looking west from inside the Harbor.
I particularly like the bank of clouds behind this freighter.
Ice on the west end of the Harbor.
Let it snow!!!
