What a difference a week makes - Manville Dam again - December 21, 2013

Last week I took my canoe down to my local park and play spot at the Manville Dam with the temps in the mid 20’s - it was too cold to paddle. I went back again yesterday, on the first day of winter, and the temps were in the high 50’s. Like they say, if you don’t like New England weather, just wait a minute. 

Melting snow even brought the river up enough to do a little paddling with my whitewater boat. Nothing tough, but after a couple of hours of playing around, the inside of my drysuit was like a puddle. It felt good.
