November 1, 2015 Milking Mission Ridge
« on: 11/01/15, 01:39 PM »

I woke up to rain and I knew I wasn't really going to make the effort to go where it's been snowing.  I resigned to a day puttering around the house.  Sara was still in bed as I made coffee.  We were out of milk. Sara drinks milk with her coffee and has since our first was born.  It's a manly feeling driving to town to get milk for a sleeping spouse.  I live near Mission Ridge, so my drive to town is down the hill with my back to the mountain.  Still lazy on the return trip, the clouds parted and I saw WHITE!  ALL WHITE!  I'M GOING SKIING!!!!!!

So that changed my day and here is what it was like.  It's no 13 feet, but it was 3 inches and I skied every bit of it and it was awesome.







Fresh snow changes everything.

You are a very sick man! Good thing you have a understanding ski partner and wife! Two months without even crappy skiing is such a long time, not having much luck breaking the skiing habit. I'll bet there is not a line forming in the parking lot to get those goods.  Thanks for the stoke!
