What We Look Like: Winter Edition

Post pictures of yourself doing things in cold weather: cycling, skiing, doubles luge, hockey, making snowmen, ice fishing, walking, eating, whatever.

Velo Vol about to go on another ride in the freezer. Temperatures in the mid-30s, wind chill in the mid-20s. Brrrrrr.

Sorry, crtreedude. I didn't mean to exclude you.

You can post a picture of how you bundle up when the temperature plummets to 65.

bigskymacadam, I think something is wrong with your dog. Or has genetic research created red ones now?

Taerom, that's a lot of snow.

Even rule looks like he had more snow than we've gotten this winter.

This is supposed to be a participatory thread.

And since you are the first female to chime in, I'll use this opportunity to note that this is an excellent opportunity for the Foo ladies to post pictures of themselves wearing tights.

Excuses, excuses.

Camera doesn't work in the winter?

A blue star doesn't know how to use the site?

Alas.

Imachad, I don't know; perhaps your picture URL is too long?
