Baby, It’s COLD Out There!
It’s been snowing on and off all day, but I decided to go for a quick walk this afternoon. I tend to hibernate indoors during the winter months, so I have to force myself outside sometimes.
I’m checking my neighbor’s house every day while she’s out of town just to make sure her furnace is still working. (It went out on her a couple years back, and her pipes nearly froze before she got home.) While I was out there, I did some strategic shoveling so Andrew would have a path to the garage if he needed something out there. It was quite pleasant outdoors, so I grabbed my camera, and off I went.
The wind always blows harder by the lake, and it was blowing pretty hard out there today. It certainly was NOT pleasant over there!
I wandered down the bike path, with the wind howling at my back. This almost looks like a black and white picture, except for the red poles they put up so they’d know where to plow when the snow gets deep. The round things are tires, part of some playground equipment. If you click on the picture, you can enlarge it so you can see the waves on Lake Superior in the background.
My hands were freezing, but I wanted to get the last picture of the Marquette Lighthouse off in the distance. It was snowing pretty hard by then. I snapped it quick and got my gloves back on. Just in that short amount of time, my hands were numb. It took quite a bit of moving them around inside my gloves to get them warmed up again.
The wind dropped off as I moved away from the shore, so I wandered down the bike path a little ways. It was tempting to take my usual walk, but I was worried about walking into the wind on the way home, so I cut it short. Good choice, as I was ready to go into my nice warm house when I got home. But I enjoyed my adventure out in the snowstorm.
