L’hiver est arrivee

We received slightly more than the predicted three inches of snow last night, so after we finished shoveling we went out to Milton Academy’s Observatory Hill to enjoy it. Andrew could hardly wait to go play.

Later on I pulled out my cross-country skis for the first time in nearly ten years and hit the trails around Houghton’s Pond. By the time I got out the snow was pretty rotten, but I still had fun. I’ve never had good technique so the rolling terrain around the pond frequently challenged my balance, but it beat the heck out of another hour on the bike trainer.
