The Iceman Cometh Slowly
Driving down to the lake today I was shocked to see ice forming on the shallow south end. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that way, especially with the recent cold weather hovering in the -18°C area, what else is there to expect? The iceman surely cometh my way! If only he would bring along some snow.
The top photo shows what snow there is so far - enough for our dogs to have fun with, but hardly what we need to ski comfortably. The lower photo, looking away to the distant hills, isn't much more promising. A dusting of snow, under clear, cold skies. I'm in the season of patience, torn between kayaking and skiing, my two favourite activities.

the dogs look happy , and like they are waiting for you to catch up and thinking 'where are his skis, he goes faster on skis..'
LOL! So true Claire. We got some snow today, so out will come the skis. Lots more snow coming on Friday and Monday...
