This is one of the last windmills of the original kind, not the new huge things that are downstate. It needs to be put back together and put to good use. It would be wonderful if we still used them for power and weren't so reliant on the grid. I wonder what caused these to pretty much become obsolete. This one looks like it has all the parts and could be put back together pretty easy. this one needs a little repair and then it could be as good as new. The dark dreary sky behind it is snow sky's. I can't wait for the sun to come out and stay out and winter would just start to fade away for another year. I thought I saw somewhere there was like 95 days til spring or something like that. warm winds, sunny skies, and mushroom hunting I can't wait.

We had an ice storm last night freezing drizzle and this is how it stuck to the tree. It sticks up like a group of snow flakes landed on each other to stack up and create little mounds or was it rain that as it dried it froze. I looks really cool by the human eye, not sure if it portrays itself in pictures well. I imagine it as little snow drones and they are standing on each others shoulders making little pointed mounds. In my imagination they are shaped like snow flakes and they have little helmets on and knee and elbow pads and they have white colored sun glasses on because they would get snow blindness just like us if it is too bright.

It was beautiful and sunny out today but the skies were clear and that is keeping us cold according to the next weather coming in we are supposed to get drizzles. I didn't have a chance to get out while it was nice and sunny so I got this picture later in the day when the sun was on the otherside of the house. It is just a 2 on my house but even 2's are photogenic. They pose so nicely and look rather relaxed doing it. I'm unable to tell if it is smiling though.
This is the roof at the feed in grain off of Mitchell st. I have another picture of this in the summer time when there are seagulls flying around and landing on it. It is actually very peaceful to sit on my porch and watch the birds land on the top. I know it is a feed and grain so I sometimes wonder if there are seeds open somewhere that the birds can get to and if there is then they probably have mice and that would be a great food source for the stray cats that live around town. Maybe they should put more grain out to attract more mice so the cats will stay out of my garbage.

It is so cold outside -18 with windchill that he put his snowmobile helmet on, so his face wouldn't get cold. Now that's dedicated. I love that man. working on snowblowing because our washer is fixed and we are having it brought back today and we are getting a new bed delivered. I absolutely cannot sleep on the old one anymore. We are getting a memory foam mattress hopefully it is comfortable. Don't go out in this crap unless you absolutely have to. We are probably breaking records somewhere.

This clock with all the crosses on it is in the old church and everytime I go by this building I really want to go in and take pictures. I am going to find the people that own it someday and go wild with the photos and then I am going to find something amazing in that building that I can paint. I can just imagine some of the old art work that is probably gracing the walls or maybe there are statues of saints or the Virgin Mary or maybe a really amazing crucifix. I have taken all kinds of pictures on the outside. I have tried to get good close up pictures of the stain glass. The building is just structurally beautiful. I have seen a picture of the clock close up but I can never take a picture of that clock without including the crosses.
