Surprise! It's Winter!
Amazing how much light the snow throws, though -- the photo above is deceptive, looking almost day-bright yet taken with no flash, available light only, in the just-breaking dawn. The one below gets a bit closer to reality
And if we needed any evidence of the raccoons' making themselves at home here . . . .
Speaking of making tracks, that's what I'd better do soon. It's going to take me considerably longer to walk to the ferry through the snow than it usually does to bike there on a clear road. . .
But at least I got a good long run (27 kilometres) on Saturday, so that I'm okay to wait out this weekend's slippery conditions (I generally follow up an extra-long run with a slide back in mileage for recovery). . .
So that's good.
And with the sunshine amplifying the snow's brightness, spirits should be high once the grumbling about complicated commutes stops.
Mine's going to stop soon. Promise.
