snowy weather

the snowy weather as of late reminds me of my time at mount washington alpine resort...  actually one memory in particular comes to mind.  one day i was exiting the staff bus, head down, grumpily trudging my way through the snow. out of the blue the bus driver asked me if i wanted a lift... at first i didn't know what he meant.. and when i realized i felt a little uneasy.  throwing caution to the wind, i hopped on the front of his skis.  he glided us down to the front doors of the lodge with ease.  it was brief, but it was the feeling of freedom.  i wasn't locked in like i normally would be on skis, i had to put all my trust in the skier himself.  and it felt good to let go.  that memory has stuck with me.   other memories include: losing my parked car in a five foot snowfall, driving under and around fallen trees, an incident with a power line that we will not speak of, and being sideswiped by a snowboard instructor... good times.
