Frosty Friday

We've hit the deep freeze, a couple of weeks early. This was the temperature when I walked to work this morning.

When I headed back down the Franklin Avenue hill after work, it was -49 with the wind chill. Kind of a drag right now, but the cold weather means the ice will be forming on the lakes - good news for smowmobilers, skiers, snowshoers (like me).

Oh my. And totally dark.

Yes - totally dark. We only have daylight from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at this time of year. Go to work in the dark, come home in the dark. I wear a little flashing light on my backpack so drivers can see me. People also put them on their dogs so they don't get hit when out for a walk.

How does one walk in such extreme temps? The joke would be, "Quickly." Honestly, though!
