Having the luxury of being retired, I find it surprising how often one can get outside between bursts of bad weather. I tend to do little "projects" as opposed to continuous x many per day/week/month anyway.

Lens testing in December 2006

And film testing in February last year (on the Perkiomen Trail about 35 miles NW of Philly):

Actually, the first few shots on roll #14 were taken at the lower end of my backyard where I did almost fall on my butt negotiating the snow and ice to get down to the creek area. The trail was easier to navigate.

Just be a bit careful about dress -- especially footwear.
