Early, Cold, Dark

Just a few images of what was going on early this morning outside my window.  The grounds crew was out early cleaning up the snow from yesterday.  It went down to 10 degrees F. last night but had warmed up to 17 when I took these pictures before 6:30 am.

Now that it is daylight the wind is coming up and it is flurrying.  Our forecast is for a high of 24 degrees today and a windy 8 degrees for tonight.  Winter is here.

I was enjoying the benefits of having my Pentax K-3 when I took these pictures through a window from inside my warm Villa.  They were all taken at ISO of 6400 and very slow shutter speeds for handheld with subject motion.
