BBBC 2017 #27

This post is part of ToadMama's Brave, Bold, Blogger Challenge (BBBC) 2017 which is an attempt to make February go by a little more quickly. There are 28 topics, one for each day. 


Nature trail or city street for walking

I didn't feel like going out and taking some new pictures so these are some screen grabs from a GoPro video taken on January 18th. This street is our subdivision road where I walk Bridget's two dogs most weekday afternoons. On this particular day it was -36°F (-38°C) so it wasn't a very long ride but it was a very beautiful, sunny day.

I used to walk a loop through these roads at least a couple of times per week before a property owner decided that he didn't like people going through the trail along the edge of his property. Actually, I blame it on a couple of kids with dirt bikes who rode through there repeatedly back and forth during the summer. I think that I would be annoyed too.

I originally had a bunch of solar stuff here but pulled it out for another post.

  1. "Bridget's two dogs"? LOL.

    As much as I'd like to think I would enjoy living in Alaska, I'm not sure I could handle that cold. Sucks that your walking loop has been cut short.

    1. After a while you dread it warming up. Lately it's been near freezing and there have been tons of accidents on the roads. So much nicer when it drops below 0°F.

  2. Alaska is a romantic notion but like Kathy says, the cold...

    My perception of the cold north has changed. North Carolina is now a cold climate.

    1. "But it's a dry cold" is something that you hear often and it's true. Lower the humidity and it doesn't feel as cold. I've been to many places where the humidity is higher and it felt much colder than here. Anchorage rarely gets down to 0°F and it feels much colder...

  3. Lovely pics, Richard. But enough with the white stuff, I am ready for spring!

    1. The "white stuff" seems to keep coming back.

  4. Nice pics but burr! Although I am glad to hear that there is still winter somewhere. It is so unseasonably warm down here, really disturbing.

    1. It'll still be "winter" here for a while. It can still snow until the end of May. But normally the last snowfall is around the beginning of May.
