Chasing Winter Blahs

In some places, a foot of snow over a weekend in March would make folks cry and drink out of bottles in suspicious looking paper bags. Not here.

Recipe for winter fun:

1. Find snow gear
2. Go to local hardware store, buy sleds
3. Go to local sledding hill. Leap on and don't hit anyone!

Yes, DH and I went sledding today. We had tons of snow, new sleds, freezing cold temps, and at least 30mph winds, and we had a ball. I regret that we don't have pictures, but with the wipeouts we both took, a camera wouldn't have survived. I know we were the oldest people there without children by about fifteen years. What a blast! And what a workout--you forget that the better slide down the hill means a longer walk up the hill. Combine a 45 degree incline with six inches of snow, and you've got yourself quite a slog. We're totally doing that again.

Have a great start to your week, folks.
