The last riding weekend of the season (for the kids and I) is imminent. It’s also time to bring the four-wheelers home, since the husband plows with mine.
Now down here in the central part of the state, it’s starting to get a little chilly in the mornings. (Translation for non-New Englanders: seeing your breath, scraping frost off the windshields, frozen puddles, time to turn the furnace on.) It’s almost time to switch from hoodies to real coats, and finding all the miscellaneous stuff—hats, gloves, etc—was starting to make an appearance toward the bottom of the to-do list.
But up in the North Country…holy crap. They’ve got snow, and it’s freaking cold. (Translation: might actually have to zip up your coat). When they start talking windchill, finding the cold weather gear starts creeping up the list, which now looks something like this:
1. Find short kid’s left glove
2. Do the tall kid’s snowpants still fit him?
3. Where the :censor: are my boots?
4. Found the short kid’s left glove….now where the hell did I put the right one?
Anyway, have a great weekend, and—if the batteries in my camera don’t freeze—I might have some snow to share with y’all come Monday.
