snow-sculpture-37983_staatsThe Saint Paul Winter Carnival concluded this past weekend, and just in the nick of time.  We finally climbed above freezing on Saturday, January 31st with a balmy 45 degrees!  It appears once again that our Vulcans have persevered over winter, and spring can’t be too far away.  This is a photo of the winning snow sculpture this year, titled “Hormel McSwine & Friends”  (obviously captured before our January thaw!).   The sculptures were on display at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and drew crowds of people admiring the art & craft, with the kids (and adults too!)  wandering through the snow maze and dreaming of the summer use of the Fairgrounds, with animals, rides, entertainment, and all types of food on a stick!  Warmer weather will prevail…soon!
