2012 Delaware Geocaching Lunch Event

Icy rain, 30-35°F. A passing snow shower deposited a few inches of snow/ice mix overnight so I had to do a bit of work shoveling out the sidewalk and driveway and cleaning up the car before I headed out. I went to the "2012 Delaware Geocaching Lunch Event" (It was supposed to be a breakfast event but it got postponed a few hours because of the weather.) at Smyrna Diner in Smyrna. It was still raining at the time so it was good to have an indoor event. It was also good to meet up with some people who I ran into previously at geocache sites. I had a BLT. I thought I'd keep it simple this time but it's actually a pretty good BLT.

To be honest, I didn't think I'd do any geocaches after the event because of the freezing rain. However, I noticed that by 3pm, the rain had stopped. So I went and did six of the new geocaches that were placed for this event. Some of these were significantly easier with snow on the ground because all I had to do was follow tracks made by other geocachers until I got to a spot where all the tracks converged. The only real issue is snow made off-road parking harder in some places. Parking at "Diospyros Lane" was the worst because the road shoulder had become a mud pit. To play it safe, I parked my car with two wheels on the asphalt.
