Last year, in January, when we had so much snow, wind, and cold, I thought that I’d brave the cold windy weather and check out a favorite spot to see what it looks like in the grip of Old Man Winter.  By the time I walked to this spot, I was about frozen.  The temp. was about 17 degrees with a light wind blowing.  The water here is not deep.  Maybe a foot or so.  Usually there are some ducks around, but not this time.  Too cold I would imagine.  I set up my camera, shot this Image, and walked quickly back to a warm car.  When it’s cold, the biggest problem I have is keeping my fingers and feet warm.  For some reason, I can’t wear any glove that will keep my hands warm. I have not found any type of glove that works, yet!  My feet are not too bad, as long as I have thick socks and boots to wear, which I do have.

Best to you and thanks

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

  1. Last year I went on a trip to Iceland with my son. One of my Icelandic friends lent me some woolen gloves and my hands were as warm as toast. Pure wool inside and soft leather out !

    1. I have tried most everything, but thanks for the suggestion. I’ll just bet it does get darn cold over there in Iceland. Allot colder than it get’s here.
