Default winter flying

Finally a nice day, @ 30 degrees and a little breezy but it was a nice day to fly. Good to break the cabin fever.its been almost 45 days without a flight. Best of all everything ran good. 2 fourstrokes and a 46fx. Come on spring

What is all that white stuff, and where are the airplanes? I have been in the south or the Middel East for the last 15 years. Usually winter flying is very enjoyable.

Looks familar -Icing on the prop. Warm day with snow around, moisture in the air, doesnt take long to happen. Anyone have any luck with preventing it? Using wd40 on the prop, oil on the blades? Not looking for special deicing equipment, but common things I may have somewhere close. I'm not too worried about it, but if there is a simple trick to preventing it, may be worth doing.
