winter

Dim, gray sky, bare trees dusted in hoarfrost or snow, same for the ground, maybe a body of water, below. Tan grasses in the foreground.

On Jan. 4, 2021, Fermilab experienced hoarfrost. Here is the wintry mix on the south half of Main Ring Road.

A child wearing a gray toboggan and blue coat faces away from the camera, trudging in furry boots through a line of leaf-blown brown leaves on a large sidewalk against a white picket fence and into a bright blue building, set against a gray sky.

On Nov. 11, 2020, a child tromps through a trail of leaves on their way to daycare on Fermilab’s campus. On Feb. 2, 2021, snow sprays above a John Deere as it clears snow from the daycare parking lot.
