It snowed!! 😀 😀
Yes, I’m excited. No, I’m not crazy. Snow means winter, and winter means snowboarding (and Christmas!!). Ask me again in a few months and I’ll probably be cursing the white stuff with every fibre of my being, but I’m very much enjoying it for now… especially because the mountain resorts are set to open next weekend and I’m hoping to make it out there to take advantage of early season riding. Squee! But I’m sensing some stank eyes, so enough snow talk for now… let’s talk Daylight Savings.
Did anyone actually get an extra hour of sleep last night? Because this girl did not. My body seems to max out at 6 hours, so I was wide awake by 3:45 and out of bed by 4. I have a feeling that today is going to be a very long day, so thank goodness for the BLOG world and its never-ending supply of good reads…
