Plenty cold, which is what I want, but the Lake Effect snow could have stayed away.

Juuust as it seems safe enough to skate across the middle, we get hit with snow overnight. Now it’s hard to see just how thick things are getting, and even though it’s not much, the snow does slow down the butter-smooth glide you get with clear hard ice. Best thing now is a good steady wind to blow things clear. It was so close to epic conditions.
