Snow, Snow, and more SNOW!!

by on Feb.10, 2010, under Uncategorized

Ok.. this will likely be disagreed with by most folks who live near me.. but I LOVE the weather we are having in DC right now. (Duly noted that if I didn’t have power/heat my thoughts would most likely change).

I grew up in New England.. I loved the weather.. I love Cold.. anyone who went to UMass with me/was in the UMMB with me will note that I wore shorts every day (including in 2 feet or more of snow).. I just flat out love cold weather and snow.

For a while now, I have been considering finding a way to convince me SO to move somewhere with lots of snow.. I want mountains, I want to be within an hour of good skiing so when amazing storms hit, followed by blue skies, I can be there enjoying it.  I want to be able to spend an afternoon snowshoeing with her and the dog, then later sitting inside with the ruddy glow that only comes from having been in the cold for hours.

Apparently, DC has decided it wants me to stay.. as long as winters are like this.. I might be Ok with that (though what I still wouldn’t give to have a real mountain to ski on within an hours drive!  I am reduced to making plans to hit Blue Knob, 2.5 hours away, to get some skiing in.. and I’ve skied on hills where BK’s total vertical = one T-BAR on the mountain)
