Breaking the ice

Just above the freezing point, but yesterday the lake was ice free. So not this morning.

2014 Season premiere

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.

Ice braking

Another fine Sunday, but the night was cold and there is some new ice.

First day of Spring

After just a few days with plus degrees Celsius (a terribly long Winter), we found that the ice is giving in.

Winter’s gone

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…).

Hässelby strandbad

I bought the dry suit in 2006 or -07, this is the first time since then that the lake is not frozen in January.

Riddarfjärden in minus 7 C

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.
