Snow Strength and Cross Country Skiing an Open Space Park

A.M.: Snow shoveling is strength training with frozen water, bearing-it up using good lifting form from legs and core, and a back naturally aligned over the center of gravity…with thoughts of shoveling a crystallized, distilled ocean fallen to earth from far away.

P.M.: Snow invited Nordic transport, gliding through an open space park in the late afternoon’s snow clouds, and loving every minute. The snow puts off the fragrance of rain as it evaporates…

Snow is life

snow is life

life

Falling, falling for two days and a night, the life giving white.

The snow pack has been lonesome and when it puts on weight, we’re all grateful. It fell this weekend and I see prospects for this week too. If it fell for three straight weeks I would not mind.

Lots of opportunity for snow shoveling, cross country skiing to get around, skiing and snowshoeing. And the crops grow.
