Water Fowl in the Snow

This city is just not equipped to handle snow; everything shuts down and only major arterials are plowed. The accumulation this year is really out of the ordinary, and this weather has lasted longer than I remember as well.

We had to get out of the house yesterday, so we walked to the lake.  The snow was deep enough that the one block hike was exhausting.

I was blown away by the number of birds in the water.  I can always count on this spot for some bird watching, but not this many birds.
