That, my friends, is a full moon reflecting on clear, cold Lake Champlain ice. It’s frozen from my house all the way to the island, frozen in that perfectly clear, smooth, ice-skating sort of way.
We haven’t been able to skate on the lake for at least three winters because the ice has to be thick enough to be safe and free of big bumps and chunks. But temperatures tonight are expected to drop near zero again. Think cold thoughts with me, okay? If we have a few more frigid nights without wind, there just might be some skating soon.
