Today started off cold – really cold! Not only did it feel like –24 outside, but it felt like 58 inside. Because it WAS 58 inside. EEK!
So when when it’s so cold inside, you may as well go outside and enjoy some beach time :-) Don’t be fooled by the blue sky and sunshine, it was freakin’ COLD out there. I had to keep warming up my fingers after each picture I took.
Sand everywhere! And just yesterday, all this sand was covered with seaweed.
Look how far away Brian is!
Looking back at the cliff from the edge of the water. I don’t remember ever seeing so much sand on the beach last winter.
It’s hard to tell in the picture, but this pile of seaweed was taller then me.
Frosty seaweed close-ups… BRRRR!
There were some interesting ice formations in the sand too. The first one looks like a fossil or prehistoric worm or something.
The good thing about being outside when it’s –24 is that it makes a 58 degree inside feel warm and balmy :-) It actually was a bit warmer than that when we got home, with the propane fireplace kicking in. And this afternoon the furnace guys showed up and fixed the problem. The thermostat battery had died overnight and the thermostat turned itself off, which resulted in a pipe freezing. They warmed up the pipe and it’s now an almost-toasty 69 degrees in the house :-)
