Personal Playground

     This was a single digit day of skiing.  Temperature that is.  Minus 2 F at the start and warming up to plus 5 F by mid day.   The snow was beautiful in the sparkling winter sun.   No day to have any flesh exposed either to the natural wind or the breeze created during a ski run.
    In spite of the temperature, it was an amazingly good day for skiing.   Only a few hardy souls were on the slopes.   Very few people for a holiday.   And the geezer group was strikingly absent.   Today, there were so few people that the area seemed like my own personal playground.   Surprised that I was no colder today than some of our 20 F days in the past.  
Mid day and not another skier in sight!
