This morning we finally awoke to a respectable amount of snow instead of just icy coldness.
After lunch everyone bundled up warmly. My first layer included the extra-long knee socks made last spring.
Strangely enough though, we were short of hats. There are plenty here, they just couldn’t be located.
Then we all went to the nearby university and went sledding.
Many others joined in the fun. After about 45 minutes my DH and I were feeling our age and the girls started to get cold so we came home for hot drinks. During one tandem run with A3 we narrowly missed a tree trunk but managed to take some branches full-on to the forehead. Ouch!
The snow has continued all day non-stop. The mountain passes are expecting between two and three feet of new snow plus winds up to 75 miles per hour. Thank heavens we’re low enough to escape that mess. It ain’t a fit night out for man nor beast!
