Well, it wasn’t really a drought it was spring then came summer then finally fall. Now that its winter again Snow is the word of everyday. For instance did it snow last night? Will it snow today or tonight? Did they get good snow on the mountain? Yes, these are the questions those of us with an affinity for the freezing white powdery stuff always ask. And, now the frenzy begins. Whether you are sledding, cross-country or downhill skiing, boarding, snow shoeing, or on snowmobiles it is time you dust off your sense of adventure and your equipment and get it on!
Yes, we all know we were hit with a pretty good storm. No, it was not record-breaking (not even close) but it did manage to get the blood pumping for some slippery excitement. I’ll spare you the boring details of the storm reported by every news channel in the area constantly for the past two days. It was if we had never seen snow before. While watching a special public address in NYC the questioned was asked (by a reporter) “I saw a plow that had become stuck, is this normal? What could have caused that to happen?” Really? Really? It’s because of the SNOW I wanted to yell.
