Ok, so the snow finally came this weekend. But, so did freezing rain, and rain. All in all, it added up to hard slogging to get to school on Monday. I'm a cyclist and I bike all winter. Usually it's ok because the roads here are mostly plowed. On Monday, however, nothing was plowed. Riding a bike in fresh snow is like riding a bucking bronco. You slip and slide and it takes a lot of balance to keep on the bike. I did live to tell the tale though.

I've been snowboarding so far 4 times this season all of which were teaching expeditions. Ben is getting a lot better and soon he's going to start going by himself to practice during the week. Hopefully soon I'll get to do some serious boarding on my own so I can try out my new board. It's really fun to board with Ben and watch him improve, but sometimes I feel I'm starting to lose my own skill!

Well, I'm off to do laundry, it's been a busy week so I'll update more about that tomorrow when I don't feel so exhausted!
