January Challenge Days 13, 14

Two days of 2C/36F. Monday we had a touch of sun and with all my warming winter things on it felt okay.

A bit of sun to light up the remaining russet leaves
I saw a horse with two heads!
Can’t complain when you have a blue sky and it’s above freezing, can you.

Today at 9:00 it was still below freezing and I again couldn’t face getting on my bike for the ride to tai chi. In the afternoon I made up for it and took a little bimble through the woods.

The paths weren’t icy, but this is a spot where the puddles are usually frozen when others aren’t. I have no idea why.
There are those fungi again – always good for a picture.

I am very satisfied with my heated gloves now. They keep my hands warm enough that I can take them off when I use the camera and my hands stay warm until I put them on again. They make winter riding much more agreeable. I tested how long the batteries last before they need to be recharged. I wore the gloves on the highest setting for about an hour outdoors and then didn’t turn them off indoors and they were good for another hour. So according to my very scientific experimenr they generate heat for two hours on the highest setting .

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Great fungi photos! Very unique!

    Wow! You photographed the long thought to be extinct bi-directional Pullimus!!
    (or is that a nuclear waste pile in the background?)

    Another heated glove Q: Can you feel warmth all the time as you wear them?
    Reason Im asking, mine feel warm to start, but no warmth is felt after a while, even tho they remain on the high setting. Very possibly due to the fact I bought some cheap a**** gloves! 😉
    Fingers dont get all that cold either, so idk.
    Thanks!

      After a while they feel less warm, but still warm. When I bring them indoors they get very warm again. I think it’s a question of how cold the environment is.

    Ah! The two-headed horse. A rare sighting indeed ;’-).

    The fungi on the trees look like giant clams with slightly off-center jaws. And I wonder how the horse’s two heads decide which one gets to lead the way and which one has to walk backwards.
