day 2013 – frozen pipes

shadow desperately needed a bath, but the outdoor pipes are frozen. i attempted to do a quick rinse anyway. i found filled a bucket with water, but that clearly didn’t work as planned every time i put water on to the car, it would immediately freeze and turn into ice. i’m afraid i won’t be able to give it a good wash until the weather warms up, which hopefully wouldn’t be too long of a wait

day 1981 – icebox

waking up at 6am was utterly difficult after sleeping in for so many. greeted by the ice cold office on the first day back at work. the heating system was doing the exact opposite of what it should be doing – bringing the outside cold air into the office. i was so cold my extremities were frozen and my brain refused to function. all i wanted to do was hover over my heater to stay sane. i felt utterly unproductive, but i guess a lot of others were on the same boat. i was told winter is coming

day 1951 – where’s summer

the weather just got cold in a hurry and i can’t stop myself from thinking back to the summer heat. the things that we could do outdoors without having to think about frozen face and fingers. i walk outside and feel the chills even when i layer up with puffy jackets with scarves. i simply don’t enjoy the cold weathers as much and the amount of layers i have to wear just to stay warm

an afternoon at cypress bowl with a a highschool friendĀ got us pretty neat stats that tracked some skiing numbers. we went progressively faster with each run and it helped when we chose blue runs to avoid the crowds. my favourite run of the day was the upper fork with midway being a close second; no unintentional black diamond runs for me this time around. i stopped having feeling in my foot at our third run, but at least i wore my balaclava this time and didn’t freeze my face

day 885 – frozen web

i need not to step outside my house to get a feeling of how cold it is out there. the spider web outside my backyard says it all. upon closer view, i don’t even see the spider manning its web, maybe it died of hypothermia. with this kind of temperature, i will gladly stay indoor in the comfort of my own home wrapped up in my cozy bed. i guess my only excuse is my legs are somewhat tired from that skiing i had done

day 883 – downtown countdown

spending the last of 2015 near canada place enjoying beautiful holiday lights before some highly anticipated midnight fireworks. the night was so cold, two brisk walks along the seawall was more than enough to get us frozen head to toe. 2015 was good for the most part, but i know that 2016 will be the best year yet. ready to take on bigger challenges that will get me past levels i have come far too comfortable at staying within

day 878 – vandusen fun

a day removed from christmas but the festivities doesn’t stop. did most of my boxing day shopping online so needn’t fight with the crowds and potentially angry mobs. it was so nice to get out and finally check out vandusen garden festival of lights. the weather cooperated with us for the most part, can’t complain about the little drizzle and wet flurries.  i thought i was dressed well and prepared for the cold, but somehow my limbs still felt frozen. still had a great time, the freezing was worth it
