Minnesota Spring “snow”

On my bike ride home from work today I got to experience what I like to call Minnesota Spring “snow”. Basically, it’s cottonwood seeds that fall from the trees like snow and coat the ground in little “snow banks”. At one point in my ride the wind was strong enough that I was surrounded in what can only be considered a blizzard of these seeds. I was wishing I had worn some kind of sunglasses to protect my eyes, so I had to squint and muscle through.

I finally stopped on one of the paths and took a picture of some of the seed mounds, and that comprises my creation for the day.
