    My driveway became a skating rink while I was lounging on the beach.

    Little layer of ice and now like 19” base of snow, more on the way today. MIGHT get some rain later tonight if that warm front makes it up here, but not likely. I’ve had enough snow for now, thanks!

    Something about living in Canada, and not being able to drive in the snow, I find hilarious.

    Mostly because of who's in it.

    I’m sure those that live in the snow belt are fine, just like those in the snow belt states in the USA. Those folks aren’t the ones driving in Seattle...:rolleyes:

    I had to wear two hats in an orienteering race I was in today. An hour and a half running around the snowy bush looking for orange flags. My biggest challenge though was trying to explain to someone how to use a compass to go east.

    Haven't done one of those since the mid eighties with the Boy Scouts. They were a lot of fun then, although I don't think I have the stamina to do them anymore.

    At least your head wasn't cold. In CT, air temps are in the low 40s today, drying out a bit and mostly sunny. Just finished baking a huge gluten-free cheesecake for some of my friends who have gluten allergies. Will top with cherry topping once the baked goods cool. Later today, a pistachio / fruit bundt cake for my non-gluten allergic friends. Kitchen is almost cleaned up from the cheesecake, will spend some time this evening with the bundt cake, and clean up the kitchen again...*sigh*...always needs to be this way...

    My secret to having stamina is going slow. Navigating disguises the limitations of my legs a fair bit. I get even with some of the fast people by showing up in front of them every few controls by taking a more efficient route. It helps to not care if some people are twice my speed.

    Up north, near the Southwick Notch in MA. I visited your areas when having some amp work done with Barry at Audio Clinic, and also am slightly familiar with Gales Ferry, the main roads in Groton and parts of Stonington and Mystic.

    My Gram used to live in Groton, where I learned about all things PRS at what used to be Ron's Guitars next to Benny's Department Store in Groton. Ron's is now next to the Dunkin' coffee shop on Long Point Rd, named Groton Guitars. It's been about since '10 last I'd visited the region and Abbott's Lobster House.
