Re: This is killing me!

Living in Washington State on Whidbey Island, I worked on my car's electrical system this afternoon.
T shirt weather. Had to take off my sweatshirt.
Cherry trees, Daffodils and Hyacinth in bloom.
Came inside 5 PM as sun was setting, still with just jeans and T shirt.

You guys just live on the wrong coast...

The Ididerod(sp?) race starts tomorrow in Alaska. They had to move the course 300 miles north to find enough snow for the race.

Skate, ski, ice-sail.

Take it slow. Sunshine will return soon.

Love, from Las Palmas, (Gran Canaria, Spain),
Where the sun is shining everyday ...
(Ooopps: yes, I miss skiing BADLY)

Should have move it to Boston.

The OP is in NY. He knows it isn't over until April. Great Lakes Ice cover is at 84% today. It was below zero half of the mornings this week. West Michigan. We may actually get above freezing tomorrow for the first time this year.

GREAT LAKES ICE COVER:

Photo - Grand haven harbor entrance light house 15 Jan 2015. The focal plane of the light up there somewhere is 52 feet. The insane idiots are standing on uncertain ice over deep water.

Re: This is killing me!

Looks beautiful..... from a distance.

The race is a thousand miles, by sled. I can't imagine.

So maybe what?.,... Chicago to New York? Gives my brain frostbite to think about it.
