Just above the freezing point, but yesterday the lake was ice free. So not this morning.
After a varm and windy Christmas, it finally snowed yesterday. But this morning was beautiful, so we deecided to get rid of some of that food.
This winter is not as the last ones, at least not yet. A couple of degrees above the freezing point and humid. Peter got me off the sofa this foggy morning.
Another fine Sunday, but the night was cold and there is some new ice.
After just a few days with plus degrees Celsius (a terribly long Winter), we found that the ice is giving in.
After goofing around for an hour and a half last week, not finding the middle part of the paddle – here we go again. (The thing was, surprisingly, already fitted to the paddle, but so was the storm one at the other paddle half – so the two halfs didn’t fit. Sigh…).
The lakes are frozen now, so we had to go out to the sea.
I bought the dry suit in 2006 or -07, this is the first time since then that the lake is not frozen in January.
Got to take every chance before the lake freezes over. Today at or just below the freezing point again.
A frosty morning…
The ice has finally withdrawn after the longest winter in many years.
There’s a cold front coming in with expected -15 centigrade temperatures. As the lake is not frozen yet we wanted to enjoy it before the skating season. Temperature was -7, but it’s not that bad as the water is at zero.
