December stretches out ahead of us. We decided to spend December in Lake Placid. It seems pleasant to be able to hang out at home instead of the usual hectic holiday schedule of past years. We'll take the road bikes out for meandering trips inside Highlands County where we live. On short trips to the coast, we'll throw our folding city bikes in the car.
The first true cold front swept through Lake Placid bringing chilly nights and cool days. True, winter in our area is mild. We switched our central system from air conditioning to heat in October, but the heat has yet to switch on even once. The past few days have been the coldest so far this year with lows in the 50s and the highs barely in the 70s.
