Rather Raw Morning

Just starting out
33F when Becca and I set off this morning with a wind chill of 29F.  Because there was almost no sunshine and the wind was persistent it felt quite raw during the entirety of our trek.  We ran into Tracey and George up near the intersection with the road, and later we encountered two women who were just starting out when we were on the final inbound leg.  Other than that we saw no one.  Can't blame people for staying out of these weather conditions until later when the day is warming up.
