Was it this cold last year? I don't remember it being this gross..but maybe I say that every year, I can't remember. I am looking forward to a little skiing though. Once the shop is closed and the keys are handed back my boy and I might take off to the mountains for a few days. I generally only enjoy skiing for about 3 days at a time MAX - then my bones start to freeze up and I can no longer keep warm and I become a HUGE pain in the arse..."it's too cold, I can't feel my feet anymore, theres ice in my pants...."and on and on until we find one of the mountain cafes for hot choc numer 45.
