Nathan - I always enjoy keeping up with your family and friends in 
these regular posts.  Keep them coming.  These two stand out for me 
in this post:

This one for the nice capture of the dank feeling of a early winter day.

And this one for the expressions on the kids faces, the reflections, 
and kids looking in two different directions, one out, one at you. 
Really nice.

Snowy traffic jams must be the same the world over.  That traffic 
shot looks like it was taken on my route home.  One look and I was 
ready for Spring - and I don't usually feel that way until February.
