The Olympic curling tournament has begun. I'll be watching the USA teams, a lot because the whole men's team is Minnesotan, and one of the women is from Eden Prairie. Since I've spent some time on curling ice in the last few years, I've come to appreciate the skill and strategy that's required to curl at this level.
Still frigid in the state - below zero again this morning. The birch trees are going to survive the cold, but it makes it hard for the humans to get out and about.
Cold and clear view of Swan Lake.
