One of the pictures from this post from February 2010 showed up as a “memory” from my cloud service, which prompted me to update it and repost.
Yes, it is true. Catherine, Eugene, Darryl and I almost proved it. I suspect that Darryl and I were in worse danger since our camping gear was marginal for cold conditions. Rather than blab on about the weekend trip, here are some shots that probably tell the story much better. If my memory serves (it frequently lets me down) this was November of 2007 and I think we were at O’Leno State Park. As I recall Eugene put a cup of water on the picnic table overnight to discovered it skimmed over with ice in the morning – reached 28 degrees that night. We did have fun that trip, though nearly freezing to death put a damper on some of it. Another first for us was seeing a scorpion when packing up to leave – nice.

The sign above reminds me of my last visit to Florida when I figured that every body of water would be a good place to not swim.It is similar to the rattlesnake signs around here. I'll take my chances with the rattlers…
