This is my car!
If I hadn't hit the car with snow from the snowblower, you wouldn't even be able to tell what color it is. We have had 3 significant snowstorms since Wednesday, and yesterday's storm was incredible - 17" of light, fluffy snow at my house. My car was cleaned off on Friday evening, so the snow on the car is mostly from the last storm. The ski mountain has gotten 32" of fluff since Friday and the skiing is amazing.
But right now, between my workouts and skiing and shoveling snow and running the snowblower, I feel like I've been worked over. I hurt my right wrist in a skiing all a couple weeks ago. It isn't really getting better and it was sore all weekend. Last night, I tripped in our house, playing games with my dog, and I fell on that same wrist. I managed to bruise my right hand and my right foot as I fell. I'm simply tired right now.
So, except for the snow removal work, today will be a rest day. But, considering that I've already spent at least 45 minutes moving snow this morning and I'll do that much more tonight, it's not going to be much of a rest day.
Regretfully, our next two storms, due on Wednesday and Saturday, will include mixed precipitation. Hopefully the mountain will not have its snowpack damaged too much, but we'll see.
This past weekend, with a Friday storm and Sunday storm making travel difficult, we didn't have a lot of people at the mountain, so the skiing was even better than expected - lots of fluffy untracked lines. Only two of the girls in my ski group showed up, so I taught them a few things that should help them in bumps and in the trees, and then we mostly skied whereever they wanted to ski. It was a great weekend.
Oh yeah, Friday night I set a new deadlift PR at 325 pounds.
I'm tired and sore everywhere. I'm getting old, I suppose.
