Morning walk on bitter cold day

Decided to take a walk down our country road to check out the recent snowfall from Lake Effect storm that dropped 18 inches of snow the day before. We were only suppose to get 2 to 4 inches. It was too deep to walk in the woods so we walked down our road. It was beautiful to see snow hanging on the branches along with blue skies with streaks of white clouds. Of course, it was cold with brisk winds on our way back home. It just feels good to be able to get outside to enjoy Mother Nature brings to the North Country.
