Snow day tomorrow

We are in the middle of a blizzard right now.  All the area schools are closed tomorrow. Wimps.  I can go to school and try to catch up on stuff I had not caught up on.  Can I get to school? I have a Toyota Tundra 4X4 truck and even better, a Subaru Outback. The Outback is the most boring car I have ever owned.  No excitement in the snow. It just gets you there. No sliding, no drifting, no getting sideways or 360s in the parking lot. Boring. I wish I had the battery in the 4-wheeler.  Now that is fun in the snow. It loves swapping ends and going crazy on the street. If I was not sitting here getting a cold or the flu I would see if I could get that boring car to a ski slope for some boarding in all the fresh powder.  I went up snowboarding Sunday for a full day of 4 inches plus of powder. Probably why I am getting sick now. 15 degrees with a fresh breeze and beating myself up in the trees. If I were 10 years younger I would say nuts on it and head on up.  I am not 10 years younger and I know better. With age comes wisdom? No, with age comes lots of sore muscles and aching joints if I decided to go with only one day’s rest. I think I also gave myself a minor concussion Sunday so I better be smart.  OK, maybe I will compromise and go cross country skiing. That is sort of safe depending where I go. Decisions, decisions. Of course if it keeps blowing 30 mph I am going to huddle down in the house and do laundry.
