It was quite brisk (3F) riding to work yesterday, so I had to stop twice and let my hands warm up. I was really missing my heated gloves. The photo above and below were taken the second time I stopped.
After work, it had warmed up considerably (28F!). I went looking for some fun on a frozen lake. There was a lot of snow piled up on Lake Josephine, and I wimped out. I went over to Lake Johanna and saw a number of trucks parked on the lake fishing. The trucks had made a number of ruts in the snow on the lake. The ruts looked to be 8-10” deep, so I wimped out again.
That’s when I realized the entire parking lot next to the lake was a giant sheet of ice! Since I didn’t have my tripod, I just stuck my camera into a snow bank. It worked quite well. Below are two of the same video (vimeo/youtube), me practicing my emergency winter maneuvers. ;)
