Baby, it's cold outside!

A quickie:

When this pic was taken this morning (at my favorite inlet), the air temperature on the car's thermometer was 8 degrees F.

If our cold continues unabated, soon the inlet will have ice thick enough for skating!  (But it's so out-of-the-way that there won't be any skaters!)   Fortunately I don't skate...




  1. As you may know we have a small house near the Jersey shore.
    My wife went to the Jersey house yesterday and the plan was for me to follow today. This storm has me still sitting in the house up in NY waiting for the authorities to lift the state of emergency.
    She has checked and the train that left Lorton Yesterday is running 4-5 hours late towards Sanford. We need that train to get back to Lorton if we are to be able to get it tomorrow afternoon to take us south...assuming I can get down to NJ this afternoon.
    Wish us luck.

    1. OMG...definitely wish you luck...I hope everything works out well. And, better late than canceled, that's for sure. I have my (very cold) fingers and toes crossed for the two of you...
