Bearable Weather

It's not nipple-killingly cold today, and it's supposed to be sort of decent this weekend, with highs in the 30s. Whee!

Much as we're ready for the end of winter, though, some local residents prefer the chill. Like Hudson, the young polar bear at the Brookfield Zoo.

We know polar bears are dangerous predators and stuff, but look at that belly! Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to go dig up a copy of one of our favorite books from childhood.
