It’s turning into a different kind of winter–so far–than last. By this time last year, we’d been riding on the lake for an entire month. The temperatures were brutally cold (sorta like last week, only with an earlier start and more of it) and there was a ton of snow.
This is what the beach looked like a year ago today.
Today, there’s bare sand, grass poking through the snow, and temperatures warm enough that I not only spent time outside today without gloves…but also without a hat.
For a bald man, that’s something indeed.
But as much as I like the feel of warm January sun on my bald pate, I prefer real winter weather hands down.
