Guess where I skated today!?

It’s frozen!  It’s really frozen! 

After weeks of wistfully watching the ice of Lake Champlain form and break up and form and break up again, we were finally able to head out on our ice skates today.  Of course, when you skate outdoors, you have to be your own Zamboni.

If you’re looking for me over the next few days, I’ll be out shoveling the lake.

  1. Brrrr! Looks cold! But it looks like you had fun!

    Bob just told me I’ve been to Lake Champlain! Who knew? We visited the fort there with C – Ticonderoga. It poured rain on us! 🙂 Shoot! If I’d known you back then, we could had coffee/lunch,..something!

  2. Actually, it was warm enough today that my daughter took her ski jacket off and just skated in her fleece. (It was up to 25F this afternoon, which may not SOUND warm, but compared to last week’s -24, it was downright balmy.)

  3. It actually wasn’t that cold because we didn’t have wind today, and the temperature was in the 20s. (I know…that’s still cold for you CA folks, but everything is relative.)

    Fort Ti is about an hour and a half south of us (by car…not by skates!)

  4. We haven’t been able to skate on the lake for at least two years…maybe three. It has to freeze just right, without big chunks of ice sticking up, so we’re especially thankful!

  5. In my fantasy I’ve always seen myself gliding on nature made ice in the peace and serenity of nature. I’ve never contemplated that I’d be clearing my path to do it. Thank you for the trip back to reality. LOL.
