How many times did you slide off the sidewalks and into the streets of Washington on Sunday night as you braced for near-certain, ice-related doom? Because I did that … more than once. Yeah. Let's just go with that.
Trudging to a Caps–Maple Leafs game as the sidewalk is freezing over is not a chill way to spend an evening, as it turns out, and I feel like, just personally, I have already had enough ice for this year, and perhaps the next.
But if you have not, can I interest you in the caves at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, which basically have the greatest ice ever — ice so rad, in fact, that crowds are reportedly flocking to check it out.
I mean seriously.
Just look at this ice.
If you thought this post was going to be more than just a bunch of cool shots of extremely photogenic ice, well:
(1) Why did you think that? Come on, man.
(2) I am very sorry about that but really what more could you want?
The caves opened Saturday, and — according to a Facebook post — will remain open "until we get significant winds that can break up the ice and blow it away," which seems semi-ominous but whatever.
If you are going, have the best time! And send me a postcard! Oh, and please bring your own snacks. It actually does say that in the Facebook post, guys, I'm not just pushing my pro-snacks agenda. Although I don't see what's wrong with that.
