Except to get the first picture, I had little interest in stepping out on Thursday due to the intense blizzard-like conditions. Upon doing so however, I encountered a brave group of individuals documenting the latest storm. This came as no surprise since everyone was talking about the weather as it was such a dramatic change from the mild pattern we had been in. Curious as to what they were doing, they invited me to tag along. Midday snow pictures bore me but they insisted I join them so I did.
I was impressed with how well coordinated they were as a team working from both in and out of the vehicle. I guess it comes easy when you have fun with whatever it is that you are doing at the time.
Heading out into the country, the roads weren't too bad although visibility was difficult at times due to blowing and drifting snow. Driving around for the better part of two hours, the bitterly cold -3 wind chill value did a number on me but didn't seem to phase them at all.
Eventually arriving back at home and before parting ways, I asked them how it is that they stay so enthusiastic in the middle of January to which they simply replied "always have fun regardless of circumstance." Keeping this in mind made the faint Light Pillars both over the city and with the moon an easy capture despite a wind chill value of -5.
