First Storm in Weeks

Finally

Spring Skiing in January!

In New Hampshire, schools get out early for skiing for some days in the winter. I was surprised when I learned about this, but my Mom told me that in her day they had the same thing. They take skiing seriously in New Hampshire!

I signed up to chaperone for the school lessons, but the organizer said I wasn’t needed – they had plenty of parents signed up. So, for about 3 hours, I skied with Clare, her best friend at school, and her Dad. The conditions were… meh. We have a huge snow drought problem here in New England this year. Thin covering and slushy — oh, and about 40 degrees. Seriously, it was like skiing on Mt. Hood in April. No bueno. We still had lots of fun and I got some good technical practice in.

Still a beautiful view!

Familiarity

In Nashua, NH for some shopping on MLK Jr. Day and decided to dive back into the past a bit.

Ski season begins!

First Snow!

Several days late, but we did get our first snow of the season, about on time — mid-November. Snow making is in full gear on the mountains, so only a few weeks and Clare and I will be slope side!
