There's no such thing as cold weather, just the wrong clothes

We have been out sampling over the past few days....pretty chilly.....but felt most sorry for the swans dodging the ice on the Ebb tide in the Teifi....always stunning looking at the icy (N Pembs) and snowy (North Wales) mountains from sea though

Slightly off topic, this from today's newspaper in Helsinki. This guy tried to rescue his boat with a chainsaw, pushing the loose ice under the firm ice and pulling the boat in the open water. Bet he will lift it earlier next season if he will continue boating....

Pretty unusual to have such conditions so early, might be a harsh winter.

We don't get too much freezing temps on the Texas coast, but it is not unusual on inland waters to have to break open holes in the ice to put out decoys when duck hunting. Usually not done from the rib though.

Hamburg last Sunday (Nov 28): -7C but sunny, no wind. But had to break my way out thru ice. Spent most of the time to get the knots in the mooring loose.
Have to admit was the last day in the water, took it out now. Had an ice cube under the crane...

regards
Jan
