Pain and Snowmakers
Greek Peak was covered with snow makers today. Almost every slope had a snow maker spewing new snow in such a way that avoiding passing through the mist was impossible. Iced up goggles and the poor visibility made traversing the slope a challenge. Also it was a noisy day as well since many of the snow makers have a high decibel output. Obviously we need more snow on the slopes so I suppose I shouldn't complain. Fortunately the conversation of the lift and at coffee break was enjoyable and I got a satisfying quota of runs. I consciously tried to be more relaxed about the day. The scenery other than the snow making was beautiful with frost coating most of the trees at a higher elevation.
Pain enters the picture in the form of on of my molars that has a failing root canal and crown. Tylenol has kept the pain in check when I'm not skiing. The good news is that when I am skiing I forget the pain and/or the cold air reduces it. Isn't it amazing that skiing is a healing activity? Meanwhile I am on schedule to have an extraction and implant. And I expect the snow makers will finish their work tonight so tomorrow will be enjoyable silence and no hazardous snow piles.
