the big freeze

the big freeze, originally uploaded by seat_5a.

Not much to report from the island. It is starting to warm up out here, but just last week the bay was frozen over...maybe not enough to walk on (you need at least half a foot of ice for walking and one foot of ice for driving), but enough to be very pretty.

Its really the wind that makes you cold and boy is it windy on this island. I learned that the reason that wind makes you cold is a human exudes body heat, of course, but that heat makes sort of a cushion around your body--a real life aura! When the wind blows, it blows away that cushion, and that's why wind feels so much colder than just low temperatures.

Luckily, I have heat!
