On Very, Very Thin Ice

Taken December 30, 2013 while yelling at the dogs to get off the ice.

  1. Morning all. Another blast of cold temps are heading our way but I guess that's the good (?) thing about that nasty ole polar vortex -- a low of 3 doesn't sound that nearly as bad when you've recently gone through a low of -15.

  2. Yeah, we have lows of 15 coming here.

    "Yelling at the dogs to get off the ice" reminds me of a funny thing that happened a long time ago. We had a bunch of snow and a crust of ice on top. The ice would support about 40 pounds, and the dog weighed 50. He'd take a couple steps, fall through, and give me this sad look. Meanwhile, my cat Megabyte was skittering across the top and giving him a look like "haha, sucker."

    Stay warm, everyone. I'll be cutting wood and/or taking Mason to the park today.

  3. On my way to the eye doctor's. The weather looks awful and we have a storm warning for tomorrow but hopefully today will not be too bad.
