My drive into work..........

One of the benefits of our move this past summer is the fact we now have to travel along this great little winding road beside the lake to get into town. It makes for a fantastic relaxing ride when I get the chance to take the bike into work.

Of course, this is what it looked like on the way into work yesterday:

Last week I had watched a program about fishing in that lake ... it didn't look anything like that in the program.

Couldn't have been Canada then Ken, here's what our lakes look like, 365 days a year...



We're just a bunch of frozen Eskimo's up here, ya know.

Well, I spent an hour shovelling a good foot of snow from the driveway this morning........and then had to take the darned god for his walk after that.

At least it looks like we are going to have the White Christmas that we've been wanting.

Not much room for error on that road is there, I suppose it was solid ice as well?

Well, the lake doesn't freeze over, but the road tends to get a good layer of ice under the packed snow this time of year. They sand the road very well though, we live up the mountain a bit, and I wouldn't make it home if they didn't plow and sand the road up the hill.

I didn't plow or sand my hill and you chugged up no problem.

Carlo, that looks treacherous!

I'm already sick of winter, and it just started (officially). I hope we get to move to California. I could do with a lot less cold and snow. Ugh.
