January roll call Who is still skiing?

cougfancougfan Posts: 303 Crazy Baller
@skialex ok here is the thread starter post away! The Wednesday night crew is waiting for the weather to cooperate so we can get our first ski of the new year in. This past week the weather in the PNW has been awful☹️ Super windy, rainy and cold. We can deal with the cold not so much the wind and rain. Hopefully we will get a break soon and can get some skiing in. Maybe even get @Rednucleus out for his first post hernia surgery ski😁 the Wednesday night crew has our “end of the year party” scheduled for next Saturday so maybe we will be able to ski before we eat and drink our evening away😉🤣😂 Will
post an account of our day/night next week

    Feel bad about posting this, but it’s getting warmer instead of colder here in Greece.
    Sunny calm day, water 57 and air 65. So strange and good at the same time, temp was around 50 in November...

    Ok @skialex that does it. You have just earned a lake Curlew panda from the Wednesday night crew 😁

    Current status here in central Illinois. SOLID We even have freezing fog - at least it looks spectacular. At least 4” of ice on the lake.

    First set of 2021! Air 41, Water 45. Still got the 4-year old stoked to be in the boat. Dropped a degree of wing angle and ran a few 28's and a 32. Great day on the water!

    Conditions are pretty good in Southern FL, looks even skiable @ dawn in front of my billionaire Palm Beach neighbors...

    Don’t want to post pictures again... doesn’t feel right... the past week was hot like never before. Skied more sets in a week than in August. Today water was 61and air in the mid 70s. Same day last year we had snow in Athens.
    Spain suffers the worst snow storm in the past 50 years...
    I’ll ski as much as I can, as we are expecting a 15 degrees drop in Celsius before the end of the week..
    @cougfan you can give me as many pandas as you want! 😊

    @AdamCord absolutely beautiful day out there at Hilltop with you guys. Also, just in case anyone was wondering, @AdamCord into -41 in those 39* water conditions! The rest of us are at least skiing with something covering our head...

    Fourth day skiing today since the first of the year. Gorgeous, sunny day and light winds. Water has dropped about 3° to 59°, but hardly a soul on the public lake. That’s one advantage of winter skiing!

    This is my last ride for a while... need to resolve a health issue that troubles me for some years. I’ll be back in a little over 2 months.. and anyway temperatures will drop significantly and finally winter is arriving, we even expect some snowfall.
    So give me as many pandas as you like for the summery photos...

    @skialex i’ve really enjoyed your “summer time pics” this past few months and must admit i’m jealous of the nice weather you have been enjoying. Wish we could get some of that up here in the PNW! Really tired of the wind, rain and cold! Spring can’t come soon enough.
    Best of luck concerning your health issue! Post more pics when you return to skiing.
    Just for you here is your third lake Curlew panda courtesy of the Wednesday night crew enjoy!

    Our lake hit a season low this morning of 57°, with air temps in the low 50s but rising under sunny skies. A little breezier than we’d wish but the lee shore offered plenty decent water and our Fluid Neos kept us absolutely warm.

    Should this thread be named "who is already skiing in January?" Trying to have a positive attitude here... :smile:
