  What not to do....
  Posted by: Celia on Dec-04-12 11:15 AM (EST)
 

Lose the grip on your plastic kayak while loading it after a pool session in overnight temps of 10 below zero. My husband did that. The whack wasn't anything bad, but the combination of the frozen boat grazing the top of his forehead, the ease of bleeding there and the temperatures made him look like he had just been in a battle with an ax murderer. There were frozen thin streams of blood arcing down his face and onto his jacket, of which he was unaware because it was so blasted cold.

On the way home we stopped for a cup of coffee at a convenience store. I suggested that I should go inside the store to get the coffee rather than him...
