Cold as Ice

Icicle%20in%20Office%20Window.jpgForget Old Faithful! The best attraction in Yellowstone is the icicle forming outside my office window. It's positively lethal! Today I almost got frostbite from my walk to the post office.

The conditions in the park have been quite extreme, forcing the National Park Service to temporarily close most park roads to all travel, even for snowmobiles. Some visitors had to spend an extra couple of nights at the snow lodge at Old Faithful because of the closures. Not a bad place to be snowed in. I'll be making the journey, weather permitting, next Wednesday and Thursday. Look for me on the Old Faithful webcam!
