This is what I got up to this morning.  Brrrr!  Good day for staying inside.  Anyone up for a chilly ride?

That's real Alaskan weather. It's high 40s-low fifties today on the sunny shores of Lake Ontario. We're heading to Fl. tomorrow, but the forecast isn't much warmer than what we'd have at home! Just my luck......

Mean ol' Mr. Winter just follows you around, making sure you don't lose out, no matter where you are.

Mr. Winter showed up here this AM with our very first frost on the punkin'. There's snow on the big mountain too but our little one is still clear.

That sure is cold Greg.  We call that kind of cold "Quebec Cold".  -5F = about -20 C.  With the wind chill the other day my wife and I could last the -21C wind chill for about 2 hours on the skis.  We were chilled to the bone and now I have the nasty cold to prove it.  The wind was straight up the hill.  Wasn't the most enjoyable ski day   I had to be somewhere that day and someone asked me if I came on the bike.  At least they are thinking.

Keep warm !

I got in a few miles yesterday in 30F weather to pick up some parts for the VW. It was frosty.
However....

This AM the temp dropped into the 20's and this happened.


So, the scoot remains a haven for the local felines.

Wish I had snow, our local ski area has been unable to open because of the warm weather. Missing the holiday business means hard time for their employees. Subzero squeaky snow sounds pretty good to me. However January scooter rides in a light jacket have been a treat.

Meanwhile, yesterday morning when I got up it was -16˚F!!  It's +2˚F this morning, and by the end of the week or early next week, it's supposed to be up in the mid-30's.

Not as cold this morning--0˚ in fact.  It's supposed to be cold through the end of the week, followed by a reprieve and the possibility of some snow next week.
