The Pacific Northwest is in the middle of a rather uncommon cold snap. We haven't warmed above freezing in a few days (since Thursday maybe?) which is pretty wild here. Of course my New England blood kind of loves it, and since it hasn't been raining I have been able to get out quite a bit. Here is some evidence of such...

Buddies: Common Goldeneye & Horned Grebe, Marine Park

Fun fact: the sand at Kelley Point Park was frozen and smashing it was rather enjoyable.
