“WintryÂ mix” is the worst of weather phenomena when one is having a party outdoors. Â Rain? Cancel. Â Snow? Have. Â Mix? Eh. Â I was happy to find that wintry mix had resolved to snow which while keeping a number of people away made a delightful setting for those who did make Operation: Icicle. Â I like the idea of a winter outdoor party as a campfire makes light and warmth mirroring the human kind of the guests as fist shaken at the depths of winter, a cry of “we shall not” to the season.
The primary fuel for the fire is left over Christmas trees. Â Here’s two at once.
14 people came out. Â I think they enjoyed themselves.
My personal highlight of the evening came very near the end.
Guest: What time is it, I’m starting to get cold.
Me: Quarter to 2.
Thank you to those who braved the “wintry mix”.
