Today was a "balmy" 27°F in Coralville. Not a fan of winter I thought I would brave the not so cold temperatures and visit the Coralville WinterFest with my still pretty new Canon 2ti. It's been a while since I've taken any real photos of the outdoors. In the warmer months I'm out all the time. I love Iowa in the summer time. In the winter time you'll only see my outside by necessity, not choice. Recent photos have either been of my cat or views from my front door step!
Today I thought it was warm enough to take photos without my fingers freezing off. I got that wrong. 27°F is not that warm after all! (-2°C in case you're wondering. 10 years here and I still don't have that one down). Photos were a challenge with gloves on. Took a ride on the horse drawn trolley with Romeo and Juliet. (Those were the horses, not the owners). That was fun. As was watching the kids get excited to sit in a fire engine. I actually think they liked that better than the horse drawn carriage. Big fan of the Coralville Fire Department I am. I wouldn't have a house now if it wasn't for them showing up so quickly in November 2009 when I had an attic fire. Coralville has a voluntary fire service with 2 fire stations, 50 volunteers and 3 paid members. Take it from me, they rock!
