MOTHER NATURES WRATH
Last weekend mother nature was not in a good mood! She tore through this part of the country leaving behind yet another message that maybe we should take notice of what we are doing to this planet we call home. Knowing conditions were not going to be ideal decided to go out for an afternoon ski last Sunday anyway. The conditions were horrid. There were tree limbs littering the trails, thick chunks of ice everywhere. It was not the winter wonderland we see on Christmas cards. My youngest thought she wasn't going to make it back. My oldest thought it was a piece of cake. My bones told me the next day we need more snow before we head out to the trails again. On a positive note we did get a glimpse of 4 deer crossing the trail in front of us. I suppose we should count our blessings.
