It Helps To Be Truly “Warm-Blooded” If You Live In “Live Free Or Die” New Hampshire.

As I said last week in my “The Definition & Picture Of “Warm-Blooded” post, there is something about being a ‘Guruge’ in New Hampshire. We somehow are more immune to the cold than most and I have no explanation, whatsoever, given that I grew up in a clime where the temperature, even at night, never fell below 70°F.

Teischan is the best or worst of the lot. Last week it was 40°F (-0.5°C). About 7″ of snow dumped by Winter Storm “Noah”.

Yes, we had spent 20 minutes shoveling snow vigorously. She was HOT and dumped her jacket on the van. (See below.) Then for the next 30 minutes she pranced around like this, in the snow, with the dogs while I continued to shovel. I was hot too. I thought about shoveling in my sweatshirt — which was a trademark not that long ago. But, now in my dotage I try to be careful. So, I sweated instead.

Alton Bay “Airport On Ice” 2018 — In Full Swing, Saturday, February 17.

Last week Alton’s famous ‘Airport on Ice‘, on Alton Bay, on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, was ready for action but there was a paucity of planes. Not so on Saturday, February 17. This is the ‘carnival’ weekend, with Sunday slated as the day of the ‘festival’ per se. But, it is snowing as I write and there will be snow on the runway and taxiway first thing in the morning until it is cleared.

Today was a tad colder than last weekend, at 33°F (i.e., just above freezing). But, with no snow on the ice, the Bay was slippery. I did NOT want to venture far with my Sony a7 II. IF I fell and damaged it — that would be a bit of a shame.

Sunday will be warm, in the 40s°F (4.4+°C). So, I think there will be a fair amount of plane traffic come the afternoon.

Enjoy.
