Bitter is not even close to describing the felling outside yesterday.
-41ºC (windchill overnight)
But that didn't stop Bill, Craig, Daniel, Austin and Chris from clearing the lower ice yesterday. Bill was the first to brave the -26ºC by venturing out and pulling out the blower yesterday afternoon. He didn't take a selfie, but I'm sure he was covering in frost and slow like these iceguys (below). The team of four managed to keep going and get rid of the concrete residue left over from the blower. (Note: best to scrape immediately after blower for the future) The sun was out yesterday and solidified the snow after the blower tracks.
Anyway, the team was able to clear and hydrate before scrabbling back to the warm nest of their abodes.
