Brrrrrrrrrrrrr-oonie! That is ICE! WOW! What a super cool (no pun intended) shot! I bet the judges love this one!!!

Yep. You are in for it now. Winter is creeping in. It's 23*f here today and we have snow that never melted. Poor trick or treaters. EVERY YEAR. They always wear big coats over their cute little outfits. What a bummer for them, hey? Auntie Laura always makes them open their coats and flash their costumes to me before they get their candy! HAHAHAHAHAA! Mean aren't I? :D

Great photo, Steve!
