Note

Snow dealings, round 5a: my driveway. Got about 3" of dense wet snow overnight, spent about a half hour as it started to get light out doing straightforward snowblowing, including clearing off the spare car.

The electrician came yesterday and replaced the old wiring on the outside of my house and the main panel, so I should now have reliable electricity, and while he was at it I had him wire in an outlet to make it easy to hook up a generator should I ever decide to acquire one.

shoveling (snow) 17:46 [3]

Snow dealings, round 5b: Nancy's driveway. Wrangling about an inch of sticky wet slush as long as it held my interest, which wasn't very long. And then sanding the bobsled run that resulted from my efforts.

Long-Sought-For Pond. I wouldn't say that it was the best ice I've ever been on, but it's as good as I need. A world of difference from yesterday, black ice and in most places essentially glassy-smooth. Blue sky and temps just a hair above freezing again, with just a slightly noticeable wind, very enjoyable. Stopped briefly four times to chat with fishermen, and the smallest thickness reported was four inches. Very noisy ice, though: the sheet was clearly flexing slightly under my weight, resulting in frequent cracking sounds, and once in a while I could actually see the crack propagating away. Unnerving, but I'm pretty confident that it's a long way from thre to being able to break through. There was nobody fishing on the NE side, and when I went over that way there was more noise, so I stuck to the SW side, which had plenty of room for me, and I was able to get a better workout this time.

Skating is a neat thing, because (for me) it's completely noncompetitive, there's no need to keep my skills up for safety reasons, and the equipment requires virtually no maintenance (yeah, my skates could probably stand t be sharpened). So on the infrequent occasion when I get a chance to do it, I just go out, flail around clumsily until I get a little bit of my mojo back, and just have a good time.

Hickory Hills. Always nice to get an opportunity for outdoor ice. Couldn't reach the ice from shore at the beach, but the neighbor's house had a board for a bridge. The ice was a lot bumpier than I had been anticipating, especially near where I started, so for a lot of the time I wasn't able to really get moving. There were some places where it was reasonably smooth, though, including (unexpectedly) a couple of snowmobile tracks in the NE cove that were clear paths through an ugly area. There were a couple of other skaters out, and I chatted with an ice fisherman after I finished, but other than that, there was nobody out there on a beautiful day, blue sky and just above freezing. There was a little bit of NW wind, so I had to work a little coming back. Not a heavy duty workout, but at least I was outdoors breathing fresh air for the better part of an hour
