snow #17,000

i wanted to go for a swim but the pool was closed again so i went for a snow walk instead (til it got dark - scared of bears and coyotes in my old age). thus:

the snow is soft and powdery, like walking in ankle-deep sand.

dunno what happened here, but i like it:

and the joys of ultimate frisbee:

i have so much reading to do, it's insane. so played trivial pursuit last night with the new MAs, beer in a snowdrift by the door (now know i suck at british *and* american trivial pursuit), and am going to dinner and kings w anne tonight.

it was supposed to be a top of zero today, but i don't think it got that warm. top of two tomorrow, then more snow. re. the enjoying this weather thing - it's fun, and it's pretty. and i'm not out in it terribly much, and then i come into a nice warm room. as my friends from colder parts of canadia tell me, it's all about dressing properly and not being outside for more than twenty minutes.

Don't you think you're being a little unfair? It was one little dance, which I only did to make you crazy, by the way. Behold my success.
