polar vortex adventure walk
I'm enjoying my fourth day off work this month due to cold. Let me just emphasize that Wisconsin doesn't close down for anything in the winter. And they've closed down *four times* in a month. Winter 2014 is not messing around. It's so intense they've nicknamed it the "polar vortex." I fought off the cooped-up-blues today with a little trip to Lake Michigan to do what else? - take some pictures. I forgot my real camera at home, so I made due with my little android camera, and I'm so glad I did.
I found rocks covered in ice and snow, and I found steam rising off the lake. Gorgeous - and so Icelandy. It helped following my thriving in winter advice for myself: to get outside in winter, even if it feels completely illogical.How are you handling the cold?
