I love a good coating of the white stuff, opens up so many opportunities: for chaos, snowboarding, small engine failure. . . After shoveling the driveway while my “reliable, user friendly” snow blower sat non-functioning and husband infuriating in the garage I headed out to Wild Mountain for a day of snowboarding while the boy was in lessons. Incredibly, the rural roads were fantastic, while the metro was a slippery slidey slushfest, yet I managed not to crash the car or end up in a ditch and got a lot of nice fluffy fresh runs in. Nice.
