Day 338 – December 4, 2018
No, it is not snowing. Nor is it raining. There is a chance of snow showers tomorrow and a better chance for a good amount this weekend. But, because the forecast calls for 40 degree and below temps, there is snow a blow’n on the slopes. I decided to stop by the resort on my way home, and as I pulled up water droplets collected on my windshield. It normally does this when the wind is also blowing, sending the flakes further up, and sometimes off, the runs. It is time for the base to be set down. And it is time to get the slopes up and running. They usually start in November, but I guess they saw that there were still some warm temps up coming, so they held off. I actually really enjoy getting close to the blowers, especially when there hasn’t been snow in a while. If you don’t know what a blizzard is like, it is one heck of a way to experience it. Just take a leisurely walk at the right point and bam. Talk about being pummeled. The weird thing is, is that it is very tranquil. Just sitting on the outside looking in allows you to tune out whatever is happening and just become entranced in its effect. Reminds me of Star Trek/Wars, when they go into light speed and the stars fly right by. Ok, so I may be a little bit off, don’t hold that against me. 🥴 Have a wonderful Wednesday. NO Pressure though!
