Pleasant winter weather this week.

There have you got your very nice slideshows of your pictures at the website? I would like to have a similar at my side.

Very nice pictures. We have the same weather here. It's cold beetween -4 to -15 degres Celsius. The good thing is that it's clear and sunny days instead of rain, rain and more rain.

Fog can freeze, just ask the trees.

Hey spacekdet
Just wanted to say thanx for the pics.
Here outside NYC, just had one real snow so far. Been having a hope for the last, oh maybe at least 10 years; to have enough snow to build an igloo. Just one of those things I want to do before I die; want to build/sit in a igloo I (and my boy) have built... with a campfire around somewhere. Still waiting
Maybe I should take a drive up your way huh? :)

Good pics. Cooold.

Dragneye: I want to build Snowhenge. A small scale replica or representation of Stonehenge. One year there was a lot of snow, maybe enough, in a city park but others got there before me.

No need to drive this far, the Buffalo Snow Belt ought to do nicely.

How to do Snowhenge in 28 seconds. I do that some years ago. :D

Sharpened up the skates and took myself for a spin.
I forgot how much fun that is.
Took some pictures in the fading light while I tried to catch my breath.

I should have stuck my foot in the frame for scale.
I'm guessing 6 to 10 inches of ice, from the look of the cracks.
Parts of the lake were mirror smooth due to last week's warm up- the meltwater refroze beautifully when the temps dropped again.
It froze hard followed by big winds which pushed most of the snow away.
Other areas where snowmobiles had driven through the slush were very rough.
Naturally, it snowed the day after I took these pix so all that smooth clear ice is once again covered in white.
Still skate-able, but slower and not nearly as photogenic.
Wish I'd gotten the skates sharpened earlier- it's rare to have that much clear, snow-free ice.
