Hasenpfeffer means "roast rabbit," so I timidly opened this new dish.
It was quite a joke, and we got several laughs from it. Might be something to try at your table next year?

In the beginning of the week, the ice started breaking up and the Minnesota started clearing:
By midweek, temperatures were still in the 30s, but the sun had made a big difference in the landscape. The river cleared and the snow left behind a muddy mess. Our bald eagles took full advantage of the weather, and you could often see groups of 3 soaring above the river. It's truly a beautiful thing to see. Animals were out and about. Here's a groundhog who let me get close enough to take his picture:

In the spirit of good friends and coworkers--
Here's a picture of Joel and the KTAL gang & Alumni at my wedding reception. (a few others snuck in too) We had such a good time, and we were glad he was a part of it. Joel's the blond in the back. He looks like the commander he is. Godspeed Joel.

Your chapstick can freeze.
Snowboots are acceptable anywhere and everywhere.
You don't have to hurry home to put your groceries in the fridge-- they are just fine in the trunk of your car.
It can snow while the sun shines.
DO NOT run your defroster in your car when it's -4 outside. (I now need a new windshield)
Keeping your car clean is a science--all a matter of timing, the forecast, and the line at the car wash.
Horizontal snow sucks.
Kitty Litter in the back of your car is a must. It adds weight and it's great when your car gets stuck.
You CAN really tell the difference between 7 and 17.
Never step down heel first.
