Where's the Snow?
You know you are getting old when you say, "Remember When." Unfortunately I do remember when X-country skiing was in my repertoire. It was a way for Jodi and I to enjoy the outdoors and get exercise at the same time. We had great hopes for this winter season with a major snowfall in December. We were so excited, we decided it was time to replace our skis from the mid 1980s and invest in new ones this winter and recommit to something we enjoyed from our earlier years. Since then, we have skied a few times but with the passing of time the snow keeps eluding us and what we have for snow is like ice. Skiing on that snow is like participating in the Red Bull Crashed Ice event happening this weekend. They use the tag, "The Ultimate Extreme Downhill Ice Racing Event." Try it on skis some time. As I head down to work out on the treadmill please join me in hoping for some good snow soon before this winter season is over.
