Guess what, winter sucks! Dark, cold and snowy. I'm freezing and don't wanna go outside any more. Naaaw... I'm just kidding. Winter is awesome and it's me who's been lazy the last two months.

Getting out there
Ice been covering the bay for a few weeks now. But heavy snowfall followed by low temperatures makes conditions a bit difficult.
