It’s been a bitterly cold week. The temperatures have been lingering around the minus thirty degree mark. Combine that with a bit of a windchill and you’ve got a feels-like temperature somewhere in the -40s.
On the bright side we finally got some snow. (Winter without snow is just brown, dirty and gross.)
On the down side, the Kid and I tried to go for a walk in our snowshoes. The snowshoes were not really necessary, of course, as the snow was only a few centimeters deep, but they were a kind of motivation to be outside.
We dressed up. We grabbed the snowshoes. We walked over to the park two minutes away. We put on our shoes… and we were already unbearably cold. We walked around for about five minutes before we couldn’t feel our fingers anymore and decided to pack it in.
Maybe next year will be warmer.
