Frozen Over!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009 ~

Steve was working today, so Eric, Zi, and I went up to the quarry, for some diving fun. When we arrived, we were greeted with ice.

There was still a small opening, near the run off point, so we were able to break it up. We were prepared, as we had had very cold temperatures during the week, and the ice was inevitable. We didn’t need the chainsaw, but Eric had it, just in case.

Eric broke up a large area of the beach for us, and we entered the water. Zi ran the line out to the plane, while I took some pictures.

We swam around a bit, then continued the line out to the boat.

It was a pretty chilly day, and when we got out, our gear froze pretty quickly.

Bottom Time ~ 30 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 44′
Water Temp. ~ 39

After our dive, we had a bit of fun on the surface. Hmm… how strong is that ice, anyway?

…and… Zi’s in!

Eric too!

By the end of it, we had most of the beach area broken up.

Thanks for coming out to play, fellas!! Zi.. thanks to your wife for those yummy Peanut Butter treats too!!! Here I am with my cold water, pudgey face…lol.
