The View From Here

snowy windshield

I was driving along a rural stretch of road the other day. There were fields on either side and the snow was blowing all around. I wouldn't quite say it was a "whiteout" condition, but it was fairly close.

Can you spot the polar bear eating a bowl of vanilla ice cream in the corner of my windshield?

No? Neither could I. In fact I couldn't really see much of anything. Great time to take a photo though.
