It was a tad cold this morning.
Well I consider 6°F (-14 °C) a tad chilly, but the sun was shining and there was nothing for it but to shift the foot of snow off of the path, drive and clear a way across the deck. I had help with the drive as Alek assisted me once he’d cleared a path for Diane next door.
With my warm woolly socks, base layer, shirt, trousers and my romper suit, hat and gloves I was soon too hot. That didn’t stop me growing a small beard-cicle. How cool, I’ve never had one of those before.
What with the winter hiking and now working outside in the low temps I’m discovering that with decent clothing the cold does not have to be a major problem. However, today was sunny and windless; some cloud and wind would have made a big difference.
Today’s out takes & extra
