Ladies and gentlemen, it is snowing in Minnesota.
This should not be news. But after last year’s winter that wasn’t, I’m very glad to see it – especially relatively early (but also relatively late) in the season. At the end of the day I think it was probably a good thing that we never got to skijor last year; we’re all more experienced now, we got more dryland training under our belts, and Squash is more mature. But in other ways I was sorely disappointed, and rolling into December I’ve been worried we’d have a repeat this winter.
So I can’t even articulate how excited I am. I’ll probably get to go skiing tomorrow morning. What began with getting an Alaskan husky puppy and continued with teaching commands and dryland training looks like it might actually end up with me actually on skis attached to my dog(s) this year, and me getting my ski legs back under me solo is part one of the second act of this tale.
…but hopefully act three, the act where I start adding dogs, doesn’t begin with a broken leg.
