Day 3

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

This morning we woke up to a pleasant surprise, SNOW! We new snow was in the forcast for last night, but we thought it was only suppose to be less than an inch. However as you can see it was closer to 4 or 5 inches!

This picture was taken about 1:30 pm yesterday afternoon.

This picture was taken about 10:00 am today!

After breakfast we headed back over to the ski jumping complex to catch another competition they had going on, however due to high winds the competition was canceled! We were able to head to the top of the 120 Meter jump and go out on the observation deck. The temperatures were much lower today especially with the howling winds that high up, and without gloves because it's harder to work the camera you know with gloves on!

Here is a picture from the top of the 120 M hill.

We then headed back into town and grabbed some lunch before we went to the Olympic Museum and some ice skating! The museum had all kinds of things from both Olympics held in Lake Placid along with other items donated by the athletes from the area. The Lake Placid area has had an Olympian in every winter olympics since they started.

After the trip through the museum we headed to the ice skating rink that was used in the 1932 Olympics. The arena was built in less than 6 months and was the first indoor arena to be used in the Olympics.

Here are me, Carrie and Angela on the ice skating rink.
