Last week I skied in sub zero temperatures as a result of the polar vortex. Great skiing with Bluebird days. Most of my geezer friends were sitting it out at home. However a few of us intrepid tough old geezer skiers had lots of fun. Coffee breaks were especially appreciated.
Today the temperature on the same ski slope was 56 F. What an amazing change in just a few days. It seems that adapting to the wild swings in winter temperatures is the new norm. Time to fight global warming that is causing extremes in weather.
I had a conversation about what the future might look like with my friend Andy this morning as we rode the lift. We were speculating on what the slopes will look like at the turn of this century. That is the time my youngest grandson would be the same age as I am now. I am dreaming that he will be enjoying the slopes then just as I am now.
