The most dangerous stretch of my commute, by far (not counting dealing with cars). The snow wasn’t cleared, and was left in giant drifts on each side of the sidewalk/pathway. It hit +13˚C yesterday, so most of it melted, only to freeze overnight. Slick. Hard. Sharp. Dangerous. I wiped out on this spot. Thankfully, I wasn’t going very fast (but I did have to duck my head, so it didn’t smash one of the cement pillars). Fun times.

hopefully this crap starts to melt soon. -25˚šC this morning, but heading up over the freezing mark on the weekend…

I prefer this version, with the uncorrected nasty sodium light, rather than the corrected pure white version.

2010/01/07: It’s winter time here in the northern hemisphere. Make a photo with snow, frost, or ice as the theme today. (@remilongva) #ds53
