Tales from the Hinterland - winter of 2011/2012 edition
Winter has finally arrived and I have finally put skis on my feet. After dodging the bullet of a forecasted ice storm yesterday, the best thing happened: the torrential rain turned to snow.
This morning, the Hinterlandian Snow Depth-o-meter showed significant accumulation:
Since there was no point in doing bike repair for the Cuba Project, I did the logical thing and went shwacking.
There were a few minor obstacles:
But it was pretty nice skiing along in the winter wonderland:
There are still some puddles to avoid:
Woohoo! First linked turns of the season!
I had the bright idea of skiing down our road but the snow was too wet to get much speed up. Thankfully, Blue Toes got first tracks in the car so I straightlined the tire track chute and managed one turn. Oh well, it's a start!

I'm sure the answer is in here someplace, but I've had a few Davidson Brother's Oatmeal stouts, a few of their Anniversery Ale's, an IPA and a Coors Light.... and just tell me... Where the hell is Hinderland?
(Adirondack Phantoms won tonight, 4-3 over the Syracuse Crunch)
Anyway, congrats on the snow, may there be feet more in your future
