Slightly Frozen

Remarkably, the lake froze over since last week. It was all open water last Monday, and now there is a sheen of ice all the way across. I'm confident it is quite thin, but at least it is there.

New Year's Day 2023

The snow is now gone. It is hovering around 40 degrees Fahrenheit on the afternoon of New Year's Day. It is a wild swing from last week's weather of subzero temperatures, only to swing back later this week. 

Such a fun time! My only wish is that we get enough of a stretch of cold weather that the lakes freeze over long enough to walk out on the ice and appreciate the vast beauty of winter.

We shall see.
