morning in minnesota

Really, waking up this morning was so beautiful - this should pass without comment.   If you look very closely, there's a big V of migrating geese in the center - probably heading down for all those fields that border Route 1.   But Minnesota heading into winter reminds me so much of Rod Stewart's "Mandolin Wind" - from Every Picture Tells a Story, released May 1971, with its lines "Oh the snow fell without a break / Buffalo died, by the frozen lake" - except.   But.   When I check the lyrics, that long remembered line is a mis-remembered line - it's "Buffalo died in the frozen fields you know / Through the coldest winter in almost fourteen years ..."   "By the frozen lake" would be much more romantic, and would rhyme.   I wish my memory had been right ...
