Waiting on Snow
Hunting season is over, but we still do not have enough snow for ski season to begin. It's 'waiting-on-snow' season. In the old days it seemed that hunting season blended seamlessly into ski season without any break in between. Not so for the last few years - these days I'm just praying that we will get a ski season eventually.
It has been very warm all fall, but today there was a cold west wind blowing and a dusting of new snow on the mountains. For the first time in a while the daytime high temperature was not in the 50s - did not top 40 even!
In the meanwhile, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hiking up hills to stay in shape.
