Sixty Degrees and Ice On Lake Loveland

Posted on 5th March 2010 by Electra Glide In Blue in Living - Tags: ,

Only in Colorado can you have a sixty degree day and enough ice on a lake to do some ice fishing. You can see out on the ice a couple of fisherman trying their luck. About five years ago in February I can remember a speed boat pulling a couple of skiers on a sixty degree day, but that was back when Al Gore was still preaching to us about global warming.

That is Longs Peak in the background, also known locally as the “twin peaks”.

Enjoy, spring is in the air.

  3. Dear EGIB (Jeff):

    Last night was the first time in months that the temperature stayed above freezing when the sun went down. It is well on the way to hitting 57º (American) today. I might roll the bike out into the driveway just to see how it looks. There is enough gravel and sand on the street to make turning a challenge. The snow in the garden is receding but it is still over 8 inches deep in most places.

    Nice picture today.

    Fondest regards,
