It’s just mesmerizing to look at all those snow laden tree branches.

Winter is so gorgeous. The downside was the arctic freeze which follows turned a lot of side streets and walk ways into icy and slippery walking path. Some take advantage of the nature skating rink by lacing up their skates to play ice-hockey on these side streets. Some just skates instead of walking on these side streets. We even saw someone walked on skis in the park.

Here is a video about the salt rush. When a commodity is short, it brings out the desperation in human nature.
