More snow, lots more snow. They threatened 24-36" on top of the 15" we received last weekend. I think we wound up with 8-10". The good news is that all the snow resulted in a 3-day weekend - whoohoo! Saturday my phone must have rang 5-6 times before noon, a sledding party was in the making. So with a little maneuvering, I made it out the door. Thankfully the main roads were clear... Our Street
The best place for sledding is 2-3 miles away at a now defunct golf course. It's a beautiful piece of property and has lots of great hills.
There were about 15 families from our church that met and we had an amazing time. Adults and kids were sledding off ramps and going airborne. There were a couple of college kids that crashed our party and provided us with quite a show. The snowboarder below and another guy on skis. The guy on skis would go down the hill off this ramp and do a back flip - it was amazing to watch. I tried to get him on camera but it all happened to quickly. A few brave sledders took the ramp as well.
A couple of my girlfriends trying out an old-fashioned toboggan - this thing flew but was heavy to carry back up the hill. The snow tubes seemed to be the most fun but there was no steering these babies - so everyone knew to watch out when they were barreling down the hill. There's another ramp the kids built off to the right and the inner tube would just sail over it - this particular hill and ramp was also the scene for many wipe outs, collisions, and sled overs (sleds toppling people and then riding over top of them.)
I couldn't resist showing this last picture. This is my friend's youngest daughter, she is 2 1/2 and just the cutest little thing.
I didn't join in the fun for the sake of my knee - I thought I could sled, but I knew my knee was not strong enough to get me back up the hill. I just hung out and socialized with friends and watched all the sledding. More snow is predicted for Wednesday and another storm next weekend - maybe by then I will be able to do some sledding myself.
I'll share some stitching in my next post. Thanks for stopping by to visit me, I just love all the comments.
Enjoy your Sunday and happy stitching!
