After taking advantage of low hydro rates to do day time laundry, I opted to play in the snow before it became blocks of ice.

I thought I would take a shot at making some happy faces. The first was more a grimace, but lesson learned. It was tricky at times to try to balance making a single line with the moderate wind.

A small group caught me finishing one and played 20 questions about snow shoes. One of them seemed keen on renting a pair.

I went to a nice open space to try a more artful face, which was fun, even if no one sees it.

Then I finished trying to get a scale that would show as a face on my GPS track. To get the look right, I think I would have to stop and start the GPS so there was only a single line, otherwise covering the same ground looks to scratchy. I tried sunglasses, but got the scale wrong for the face.

Not much distance in the hour, but the snow was deep and is now quite heavy. And I packed down the Turkey Trot for the girl next door who comes home that way in the winter.

Cleaned up the drive and my stairs off the timer - Mrs would not approve of me cracking my skull because I was lazy and let the stairs become an ice sheet.
