Ice Fog. Non-birding post

For the last few days we have had morning ice fog which is cold, damp and it sticks to everything it touches. This is very common in February with short cold and dreary days. When the sun comes out this can make for very beautiful crystal formations on all the twigs and grasses.

Walking with the sun sparkling over everything is very impressive with feathers of frost coating all the twigs and wires making this a real treat after all the grey featureless days days we have had this February.

This week we had a feast at the school hoasted by one of the 4 first nation clans at the school, with much good food, Bannock, different fish and traditional foods. The kitchen was very busy all morning with the cooking and prep for the feast. The school was full of good smells and fun and laughter as the food was being prepared.
