Ice Skating in December

Of all the winter sports available here, the one with the shortest season is ice skating. That is, if it is even possible in the first place.  For skating to happen, the lake has to freeze hard, and then it has to be free of snow.  Often times, we will get the ice, and then it will cloud up and snow immediately.  This year was a rare exception.

The lake froze on December twenty-second.  We enjoyed some  cold weather with clear skies for the next few days, and it made for the most incredible skating experiences.  I'm just now catching up with the photos and videos to share here.

Greg also shot some amazing video footage, and soon I will be editing it and putting it up on You Tube.  Though the skating season was short-lived, without a doubt it was the  most memorable.
