Hi fellow Hiveians,

Today I wanted to post a couple more photos from the winter I don't think I got to before!

Frozen Photos

Living in New England, there is ample things to go out and about to see. Each of the seasons has it's wonders and amazing things to see and take pictures of which is pretty cool! It's a little difficult being out there when it's bitter cold but that does mean we get chances to see cool things like this.

The lake is certainly one of our favorite places to be and one we will certainly miss when we move away. We thankfully have plans in motion to be able to visit once or twice a year but that's the thing with plans, they are ideas that may not always come to fruition but I digress.

One of the things that's a little wild about the lake is the giant cracks that shoot through the ice for one reason or another lol. This one was a little unnerving! It was towards the end of the winter as well, so the ice wasn't as thick and was melting which is probably why it cracked like this. Some of the people were still out there ice fishing and ice skating which I guess is fine because they are used to it but it's a little more dangerous for my taste so we stayed off it lol

What was nice to see though was this little bubbling brook that was feeding the larger part of the lake. It was still cold enough at night and during the day that good parts of it froze but not cold enough to freeze the entire little stream itself. Made for a nice backdrop to looking out at the lake!

It's remarkable what the tiniest splashes of the water can do to pop upwards and just freeze up and slowly build this little piece of ice up to something a bit bigger than one would expect. It may seem insignificant but I really liked the cool bit of ice here, was a fun catch!

I love winter photos! And long, long ice sheets on rivers and lakes. Always so peaceful.

Thanks! Yeah the winter shots do end up looking pretty cool even if it’s harsh to get them hahaha.

The frozen lake ones are cool as hell, seeing those giant sheets go on for hundreds or thousands of feet.

The little stream makes for beautiful photos @cmplxty 😎
Yes, you are right, with cracks like that in the ice you need to be careful.
The seasons in New England sound lovely… you guys experience them fully. Unlike here in Spain hahaha
Have a great Monday 😁

The New England seasons are certainly beautiful and we enjoy them a lot! It’s a little difficult for my wife but I don’t mind them and actually look forward to the changes. When we move we won’t get that much difference in seasons but that’s okay things in life are about change!

That’s great to hear @cmplxty 😎 to bad it is different for your wife.
Where are you moving too? Hope you don’t mind asking.
We are hopefully moving this year too 🤞🏻 If all goes well and the backlog in paperwork is resolved. Towards the 4 seasons weather we go 😁 can’t wait…

We are moving somewhere in the southern United States, haven’t had a 100% yes to somewhere just yet but somewhere seasons aren’t as defined as they are here now lol. It will be good for my wife so I’ll learn to adapt to it, can’t hurt being outside year round as a family! We are hoping to eventually be able to afford something small back home to keep so we can come back and not have to rent a hotel or something.

I enjoy the different seasons so I know what you mean by looking forward to the seasons! Will it be in Spain that you’re moving or somewhere further? I don’t know much about the geography of Spain besides that it’s warm in most places.

Hope it will make a difference for her 😊 for me with my back, joints and skin… the warm weather did do wonders. It is a different lifestyle too.
No, you are right. To be able to be out and about all year is just amazing. Walking. The times we are still sitting on a terrace of a restaurant in autumn or even winter is vast. Just the summer is almost unbearable… it gets “the last years” just toooooo hot here, so you can’t really go out. Climate change for sure. The winters are worse and the summers are more extreme. No in between seasons here in Southern Spain.
We will be moving to New England 😁 that’s why I asked. Company relocates us. But the pandemic is still delaying things as we are planning since last October. But we are patient.
It will be my 6 country of residence and first continent change if we get over 😎 have only lived in Spain for 6,5 years now. And only in the south. Up north in Spain it is cooler in all seasons and much different. But we are we’re work brings us 😉

That’s great what state will they be moving you to? There’s lots of beauty in the area that I can recommend! Apart from the tourist traps for sure hehe. The region is remarkable in that there is a lot of beauty to be had!

I don’t think I agree with “climate change” as something that’s happening. The climate is never consistent and our small snapshot of what we know is so tiny compared to historic trends. Every time they try to scare people into things like “the ice caps will disappear by 2000” never come to pass because it’s impossible to predict long term this stuff. They can barely predict a week out for temperature never mind a month, a year, 10 years! Lol. Could we do things differently and more efficient? Yes absolutely! But cow farts and a 25 mile per gallon vehicle aren’t going to drastically change much.

It’s unfortunate that massive money and powerful groups are pushing that idea along but it’s all about money and the next thing they can try to profit from sadly. The massive open-air mining pits they have for rare metals like lithium, cobalt are far more damaging than drilling for oil but that’s another discussion entirely hehe.

I think there’s definitely benefits that come along with living in a warm place that’s for sure. As long as we don’t lose air conditioning we should be able to manage lol it’s good on the joints!

We are concentrating on Mass but that could still change in the final agreements. We could choose out of a few states. Reading up on a lot since months to get a feel and more information, but always hard from afar. We have been around the US, but not to New England yet. Any information would be grately appreciated. 😁

I do understand your point and why you think that. Looking to the bigger picture you are right, our lives is too tiny to see a proper change. They can’t predict the weather any time hahaha definitely not what comes next.
But since I moved to Spain, I do see changes in climate/ temperature in the northern countries and here in the South the last years. The north doesn’t have really winters anymore, I remember being a kid 70-80s and we always had loads of snow in The Netherlands for months, now maybe a week… but the consistency of the snow changed too. It is wet and goes ugly mud puddle like… maybe other continents the changes are not that visible then here?

Yes, those little changes they are promoting will do not much as so much other things are still continuing and others are so profiting of it all. It always is about the money. Hehehe it won’t change.

I don’t like the air conditioner so I think our move will be just fine 😉😁 and by reading what you say, your move will be just fine for your wife.

We do adjust in life to changes luckily…
