We’re two weeks away from New Year’s Day. Every year that we’ve been at the farm, I’ve been able to go skating on the pond on New Year’s.
Unless we get a serious cold snap for Christmas, I don’t think skating’s going to be on the activity list.
The surface of the pond is more about reflections these days than it is about ice.
The water is trickling in the creek.
The deer paths around the shore are very, very squishy–not even close to frozen–mud.
The reeds are still green.
A thirsty puppy even has a place to get a drink.
2016 is coming no matter what. Skating? I’m not so sure.
What’s the weather like where you are? How are you planning to celebrate New Year’s? Do you have any traditions you’re looking forward to?
