Something from the archives to encourage the return of winter this weekend.
I checked to see if I had shared this before but apparently I went on a forgotten three month hiatus at the beginning of 2018.
This was found on Puffer’s Pond in North Amherst on this day two years ago. I had never seen the pond with these chunks of ice and it immediately made me think I had been transported to Iceland. It’s clarity was amazing and there were quite of few others spread around although most were more cloudy.
It was 7°F on that day. Friday night we should return to winter with the temperature dropping to near zero or possibly below in spots. I’m rubbing my palms in anticipation and practicing to keep them warm. I recently purchased some lithium battery powered heated gloves. They’ve worked out well on the few days it’s been below 32° but this will be the real test of their value.
