I thought we’d get away with a milder winter this year considering the deluge of snow we’d gotten in 2014. Usually that’s how it works, a little reprieve after an excess of something. January was quite okay but then came February where we’ve seen cancellations of classes and activities almost every Monday. We’ve reached record lows in temperature in the last few weeks and somehow it just doesn’t seem right as we head from one weather extreme to another. I know most of us attribute it to global warming, a behemoth that we all feel incapable of handling and restraining.
We tried to make the most of the weekend by being outdoors for most of Saturday in the Catskills. The temperature was around seven degrees Fahrenheit but we stuck with skiing despite the snow and blustery winds. It seemed like a lot of people had the same idea as we waited in ski rental lines that snaked around endlessly, taking almost about an hour before we could head out to the slopes.
The best part of the weekend for the girls was having their favorite French onion soup at one of our favorite restaurant stops when we’re in the Catskills. I was less indulgent and settled for a cheese platter with warm cider. Hope you had a great weekend!
