Last week’s storm dumped about 2 ft of snow on us. I think we hit a daytime low of -15F (-26C). Damn cold.
Still, Bode had his first week of ski team and he had a blast. We’ll be at the mountain every Friday at 8:30 AM from here on out.
We met a few of the coaches. “Toad” runs this part of the Competition Center and seems like a cool guy. Exactly who should be running a ski team for kids. Baseball, football, basketball… your coach probably won’t be named Toad.
All the kids in Bode’s group are around his age and it’s an ‘all-mountain’ group. It’s for fun. No spandex and shin guards just yet.
Not surprisingly, the bus would not start at -15F. It weakly turned over a few times and sputtered a bit. Then, the battery cut out. It had never given me issues before, so I’ll just chalk it up to the cold. I think I bought the battery in Argentina (or Chile), so it’s got some miles on it. I don’t have a charger, so for now, it’s either take the (other) bus or wait for warmer weather.
