The Ice Festival and Warm Snow

Isn't this ice sled beautiful?!
We have had frigid cold weather for over two weeks, so last weekend was perhaps too perfect for the Ice Festival. We, like most people we observed, walked briskly around the displays in the Diamond. We might have lingered a bit in a gap with some sun.
Or to take a quick picture - -but finding a warm place to shop for a few moments was more popular than usual.
The past couple days' warming trend into the twenties, and even above freezing, seems like a heat wave.
One thing about snow in these warmer temperatures is the big fat flakes that really stick to everything. Its a "Winter Wonderland".Watching the video below, the snow almost seems fake. The goats don't care.
They just want breakfast.
