Woke up Sunday morning to find that all our nice warm weather had been permanently blown away overnight by a bitter cold wind. Seems like Winter's here early this year. There's even a dusting of snow out there!

Hopefully some of you can share some recent pictures that'll make me feel warmer! Mind you, I don't mind pictures of cold either, they'll help me get accustomed to the reality that is Winter :|

If you need guidelines to follow, there they are!

Another huge thanks to BCB for hosting last week and for selecting my humble submission as last week's winner! Also, big thanks go out to tiffpix for coaxing me out of the house to take that winning picture in the first place ;)

So without further delay, TW3 #91 is on!
Photons are your friends! :-)

Ok, I'll play. I'll try to share a little California warmth for you folks in or near the GWN.

Well, regardless of the date on the calender it is winter in Ontario.
My son and I went for a walk/hunt on one of our favourite trails Sunday.
I ventured a bit farther than normal and wandered up to a lake we had until now ignored.
Don't hate me but I took the picture with my phone.
Carrying a gun, ammo and an SLR just seems too cumbersome.
It was kind of hazy and cold so colours aren't real bright.
But it is what it is.

I give you Bass Lake.

says the brewmeister. I live a little southeast of BCB and noted three days in a row of mornings in the 30's. Yes it warmed up to the mid 60's, but we ain't exactly lavishing in the tropics over here, lol.

Geezs Mike, we have to perpetuate the California lifestyle myth here. :cool: Don't tell them that it actually gets cold here. Oh...I guess you did. :~(

Ok, I'll just have to go back complaining about the fog.

I already know the truth. Despite the fact that Canada actually reaches down farther South than the northern part of California, I know very well that you're all sitting on beaches and tanning everyday, year-round.

No kidding about bitter cold.

I've been riding my scooter to work for over two months now, gradually buying and laying on protection as it got colder. It's now hit 5/-5 C (~42/24 F) and will get colder as the days go on, so today I decided to leave the bike and take a cab (Wednesday is also the only day my girl and I start work at the same time so we can go together). Figure I've saved a good deal of cab fare riding on my own all this time. Time to spend for comfort.

It's not so bad when I can leave later in the morning, but when I need to be in for an 8:00 class it starts to hurt.
