If the shoe fits...

I joined some friends for the day since Art is off in sunny Arizona. They have a rope tow set up in their back yard with several runs cleared for skiing. They also have many trails carved for snowshoeing in winter, and hiking in the summer.
We had about eight inches of fresh fluffy snow last night so it was beautiful.
We spent a good part of the day hiking around, then headed inside for chili, venison stew, chicken soup and fresh baked bread.
It warmed up about twenty degrees over what it has been all week. Still amazing to me how warm the teens can feel after a cold snap.
A great day :-)

When I lived in snow country, I unbuttoned my coat when it got 20 degrees. Now I freeze when it dips below 50.

It's so true about the temps. My hubby went out to plow the new snow and said "gee it's pretty nice outside" I was laughing because it's still in the teens...but dang if it doesn't feel balmy compared to last week!

My goodness I bet that's great exercise. I tend to "think" about getting out in the snow and walking my usual spring/summer/fall route, but so far I haven't. You have beautiful country up there!

I don't live where it is normally that cold in the winter. But we have had a few ice storms and freak snow storms over the years have stayed on the ground for a while and it is true that when you get unusually cold weather and then it go's up a few degrees, you do suddenly feel like it's not so bad. I wonder why. Maybe it has something to do with the body adjusting to it's environment

That's it, I'm moving to New Hampshire! We were in the 70's today, and I actually got a tad too warm when walking the dog. I WANT SNOW!!!
