January Thaw – Friday Photos

January thaw 1

It warmed up this week and temperatures rose from 9 degrees into the high 40’s. The ice on the pond has thinned.

Thaw 2

Maybe I shouldn’t be out here taking pictures.


Jan thaw 3

It is safer near the shore, but the good shots are out on the ice.

I opened the doors and ate lunch outside on the deck.

thaw 4

We Coloradans can enjoy a few more warm days until the next cold snap. Then maybe we’ll get some of my favorite white stuff.


Prepare to Be TypealyzedΒ was my 200th post! Be sure to stop by and try it out if you haven’t already.

Are you still enjoying winter or are you looking forward to spring?

    1. Thanks so much! I have been working hard on my rewrite and needed a blog post. I thought there would be some interesting patterns in the ice after our thaw and I lucked out. πŸ™‚


  1. Love the photos. Here in Ontario we had 3 days of thaw and now back to -29 celcius which is about -20F. We are in for the whole week of it next week. May I go back to Northern California please??:)


    1. Thank you! I figured it would send a warning “shout” if it began to crack. I noticed the coyote that was out here the other day ran around the pond…Maybe it is smarter than I am. πŸ™‚


  2. I have to say I really do enjoy a good fluffy snowfall. We just had a storm and the kids and I all went outside to play.It was so quiet and beautiful. But I am counting down the days until spring, which here should come around May.


    1. Me too! Bring it on Mother Winter! Is winter a mother or a father? I think I am mixing him up with Father Time…
      We are going to the mountains tomorrow to get our fix of snow.
      I hope spring comes to Maine before then!


    1. I am ready for some more snow, so I will pass that along to her. Courtney just called while I was writing this comment and she is boarding. They had a fab time and are exhausted, but happy travelers!


  3. Snow came, temps made it go away along with the ice on the pond in Stanley Park. No worry. Next week in the 20’s w/ wind chill. Yippeee. Also check NYLON DAZE blog. Your photos and Patti’s give me a wonderful perspective on NYC and Col. Two places I’d love to commute between.


  4. What you haven’t had enough ice cold dunking for one year? Stay off that ice woman!

    Pretty pictures, but it looks cold. I wish we had some of the white stuff. It’s been really cold here in Northern California, but still no snow at my house. Tahoe’s having a good ski season though. Yay!!!

    1. We may have to fly to Tahoe! It is still lean in the mountains. Here in the front range, we are having another springlike day! It’s a great day for a hike!
      Don’t worry, I won’t go back out there until the cold snap and then I will bring my skates. πŸ™‚
      Thanks Patricia and have a great weekend!


    1. I just picked up my daughter from the airport. She was there to see The Saturdays (she won the trip) and she thought it was freezing this morning when the wind picked up!

      I am glad that you include your link since it’s not a WP blog!
      Thank you!


      1. Actually, it is a wordpress theme and I do use wordpress, but Go Daddy is my host. I just started doing that with my replies, and I also filled out my gravitar photo profile. Still learning!


        1. I know! I suppose I could use my old K2s but my new Volkls handle so much better in the crud! We get a season pass and this year we went for Winter Park/Copper with six days at Steamboat. I think Winter Park and especially Mary Jane has some of the best snow around this year so far. Yes! We’ll have to meet for some runs! That would be fun!


  5. photos are awesome – is that your estate? just finished watching Secrets of the Manor House from PBS (related to Downton Abbey some how) It’s warm here in Illinois but it’s gonna get colder, but no snow 😦 have a great day!


  6. I’m not really a snow bunny, but I tolerate winter as best as I can. I do enjoy the snow days when my kids get to stay home. That’s always a nice treat — but then we regret it come June and we have to make those snow days up!!


    1. We always got few days off before they tacked them on. I really love the change of seasons. Last year, it was moderate, but we never got any really warm days. I think it was 60 today! I’ve been eating outside all week! Soon the snow will fly once again… πŸ™‚


  7. Your pictures are amazingly beautiful. I love the last two pics. That sun is amazing. I feel kind of bad that it was a 70-degree-winter day out here in So. Cal. I’ll send you warm thoughts πŸ™‚


  8. Those pictures are amazing! LOVE. I gotta say, it makes me cold looking at them though. I like jacket weather, but I don’t want to still be shivering when I’m wearing ‘said’ jacket. A little more warmth is more than welcome.


    1. Thanks Wendy! I am so glad that you stopped by! Spring is a wonderful time of year and I love “the fever.”
      I am still waiting for Winter to begin down in Boulder. We are up in the mountains now and it is snowing, but we could use a foot or two!
