Melted Snow 'Aint All Bad
Today it was 45 degrees, raining hard and windy. But when I went into work I still planned on going for a ski afterwards. And then Jeremy dropped by the museum. He asked if I wanted to go rafting later in the afternoon. Initially I said no, but every time I looked outside it was just so dismal and wet - so UGLY. So when he called back at lunchtime I agreed to go. And boy am I glad I did!
What was I thinking about not wanting to go whitewater rafting? The equivalent ski day would have been a sunny day and 2 feet of dry powder. Sargent Creek was raging with standing wave trains. Afterwards I drove directly to St Marys and picked up the kids from school in my wet suit. Stuey was embarrassed to see me in the wet suit.
Here is a quick 30 second video to give you an idea of what it was like. Patrick
