PHOTO OF THE DAY: SHROUDED IN FOG

Heavy fog clung to the air Sunday morning following an on-again, off-again snow on Saturday. While it only amounted to a few inches, it successfully gave the landscape a fresh coat of white, reminding us that we remain in the doldrums of winter.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: THE WHITE STUFF RETURNS

Music Hall at Freeman Academy — which opened as South Dakota Mennonite College in 1903 and is Freeman's most historic structure — is pictured on a snowy Jan. 23 morning. The white stuff was expected to fall throughout the day on Saturday, although not a lot of accumulation was expected.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: SHOOTING HISTORY

A crew from South Dakota Public Broadcasting was in Freeman Thursday, Jan. 21 exploring and photographing some of the historical displays and artifacts at Heritage Hall Museum & Archives for an upcoming segment of Dakota Life. This is Nate Wek, content producer, shooting the J.J. Mendel display in the Kauffman Wing of the museum after shooting some of the outdoor displays. Freeman will be featured as the “host city” in the program slated to air Thursday night, Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. CST.

Here is another look at the Freeman Prairie Arboretum on a recent last-winter afternoon.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: WINTER ART

This photo taken at the Freeman Prairie Arboretum serves as a reminder that there is beauty, even in the dead of winter.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: DAY OF OBSERVANCE

A sign on the front door at the Freeman Post Office reminds patrons that it is closed because of Martin Lutheran King Jr. Day, a federal holiday observed annually the third Monday of January. The holiday was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1983 and first observed in 1986. It wasn't officially observed in all 50 states, however, until 2000.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: LIT BY THE SUN

Sunday morning dawned with sunshine for the first time in days, illuminating the landscape and these blades of grass peeking through the snow.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: A REMINDER ...

PHOTO OF THE DAY: PLAYGROUND PLAYBOOK

A few boys from Freeman Elementary gather to play a little football during recess earlier this week. There is no recess today — there is no school today — because of the winter weather that has moved across the region. While little snow has fallen, high winds are making for tough conditions in eastern South Dakota, which is on the back side of more severe system to the east. Thursday's night's Freeman doubleheader at Bon Homme was postponed, as was the home girls basketball game at Menno.
