We went to the cabin with some friends. Well my BB Guy (Big Burly Guy for the new readers) was already at the cabin but he came back on the 31st. to pick us up and take us back there.
The day started out like this. My BB Guy took this on his way to get us.
While I was taking this picture from home through the front window.
It was a clear cold day. However it was considerably colder where he came from than where I was. Can you say -25 below. I know!!!
So off we went to the cabin, a 3 hour drive. My coffee buddy Earl gave me a bottle of brandy to fortify me for the drive up. It was a joke. I don't drink in the car even if I am not driving. But that brandy did come in handy one day by the fire. The roads were clear thankfully. I am always scared on the drive and I was really hoping for no snow or ice on the roads. So far so good.
We started out our evening with some ice cold champagne. It went well with the ice cold body I had. Once again we went somewhere in the middle of winter without my coat and boots. To see the last time this happened click here. I can't blame him this time though because I walked right by them at the front door myself. So here I was at the cabin in -25 degree weather without my winter coat or boots. I got to wear my guys size 13 boots and his snowmobile jacket. I was still freezing outside. I put on more layers. I was still cold. I had 2 hoods on. I was still cold. I got frostbite on my cheeks and jawline. I am not an outdoors girl...
One of the locals had created an outdoor curling rink on the street. They had a huge bonfire going and many congregated there. I wasn't there for long before my feet in my size 13 boots slipped out from under me and BAM down I went. Smacked my head really hard on the ice and gave myself a nasty whiplashed neck and back. Spilled my wine everywhere. The snow and ice looked like a killing field full of blood but it was all red wine. No blood at all not even a bump but oh man am I sore in my neck and back.
So this is the last thing I took a picture of that night.
They used milk jugs frozen with water as the curling rocks. The local dogs were having fun with them too.
Remember.... -25 degrees. The locals didn't seem to notice that it was cold out.
Well that is what I did for New Years. Knocked myself senseless on the ice in sub zero temperatures. How about you? What did you guys do?
