Finally got out on an alright ride the other day. Yeah, there's still snow, and my xc skis have seen way more time than my bikes in the last month. I like it. It's only 1 degree F outside now, and it'll be that cold all weekend. With more snow. Yes.
My mom made it to Haiti this morning. She's volunteering down there, helping out with free eye care. She's off the grid until next weekend when she flies back to the states. It's her first trip out of the country, first time to the third world, and she was super excited when we talked about it.
The two snowstorms we've had in the last two weeks left a ton of snow around. Most of the neighborhood roads around our place are still down to one lane. There's still about a foot in most places, more in others, and some grass just starting to peak through. I'm skiing down here where I've never considered it before, and just got out for my first bike ride in 2 weeks yesterday. Oh, and all it did in Olympia was rain. That's Xmas morning. I missed a white Xmas by so little.
