They’re skiing out west. And I’m not.
Yes, I’m jealous. Because while the west is getting snow, all we’re getting is a gigantic hurricane moving up the east coast. Sure, the system brought snow to West Virginia and parts of the Appalachians. But here in Vermont, all we ended up with was rain, wind, and more wind.
We live where we live for a variety of reasons. I’m in the east because it’s where I grew up, where my family is, and where I’m most comfortable. I suppose I could move, but I love New England. And if it means giving up a bit when it comes to skiing, well, so be it.
All the same, I can’t help but drool when I see the pix from Tahoe, Montana, and Colorado.
Here are a few from various ski resort websites:
The snow will come, maybe later than I’d like, but it’ll get here. In the meantime, if you’re skiing, take a run (or two) for me.
If it’s any consolation Wendy, we got some early snow that has now turned to rain. And the forecast is calling for more rain in the mountains, which will saturate the ground and make it harder for future snow to stick. Oh well. Glad to see you posting something today; it must mean you faired okay from the storm.
We came through this one a lot better than Irene, Kim. Just some rain
and wind — not nearly as bad as the situation to the south. My thoughts
are with those who suffered damage. Stay safe, everyone!
We’re already skiing in France too! The snow is surprisingly great, but the open area is quite small… only the glaciers are open.
Yep, I echo Kim’s comment. Up on Hood we’d accumulated a measly foot of snow but it all got washed away by a pineapple express rainstorm last weekend. I’m wishing for some white stuff on our mountains, and envying the places that are already skiing!
No need to get too envious just yet its only November… six glorious winter months of the snow lay ahead! Just a little bit of patience and we’ll all be swimming in the white stuff soon enough!
