Default Photo Challenge 191 'Closed for the Season' {Jan 28/14}

Photo challenge # 191 'Closed for the season'. I thought of this challenge this past week when I drove past a chip wagon parked in a lot. However, it has been so cold that I didn't get out to get photos. Now, if you live in the southern hemisphere you may be able to post skating rinks that are closed for the summer. And it doesn't have to have a 'closed' sign on it, just as long as you know it is closed up for the season. I'll try to get out to take some pictures later today, but it was too cold to go for our usual walk this morning.......a wind chill factor of -32 C. degrees.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~HAVE FUN

What a fun idea! I'll have to think about this because there's not a lot that is totally seasonal here (bonus of a temperate climate). Now, when I went to the zoo last week most of the food concessions were closed, but I think maybe because it was a weekday and not the weekend.
Thanks, Ina!

Even though its really cold, the sun was shining this afternoon, so before I went to the gym, I toured around a bit and took some photos.
Photo 1. It's pretty obvious that the boat is closed up for the winter.
Number two: The walking trail is also closed. although our neighbour walks his two dogs through there when the snow isn't too deep.
Photo 3: The cottage road has this sign up because of the ice storm at Christmas time. Lots of trees still have limbs partially severed, which could fall at any time.
The last one is of my grandson's favourite outdoor playground.

Good photos Ina. Our ice skating rinks are indoors I'm not sure if we have much that is closed for the season. I know there are a couple of water parks out here and perhaps I can take a run to one of those before they open.

I haven't spotted anything seasonal here - Florida - all is open here for those who have left the cold and the closed behind for a few!

I'm sorry - this is the best I can do for this challenge, and it's not really a weather season as such.
There are roadworks from Nov thru' June outside work at the moment, on the road heading in to the city centre. Just now the bus stop outside work is closed while they work on that stretch of the road.
