Saturday was pleasant paddling, Sunday was freezing rain and windy, and this week had enough snow that some of my buddies went out skiing. I suspected last weekend might be the last Sask-paddling in 2013 (I’m sure I can paddle X-mas eve in Vancouver), but now I know Winter is really here. However, the Fall was extended (for Sask) and dry, and having a short transition between paddling and skiing is the best scenario. Weeks of dry freezing cold with no snow is a mega-bummer. I’m glad to have brought some of Jennie’s snow-thusiasm back with me from Sweden. 🙂
I have signed up for an XC Skiing group and will bring my paddle home from the boathouse to hibernate for the winter. My bike is also ready to head down to storage – see you in 2014, buddy!
