Symbolic End to Winter

This may seem like old news, but we’ve finally accepted the fact that winter is over and done. As a testament to this, we put all of our skiing equipment into the basement, and let me tell you, for a family of four, complete sets of Alpine and Nordic ski equipment can sure take up a lot of space (that doesn't include boots). Throw in three snowboard and boots, and we need a small warehouse to keep all this stuff. We didn’t even really get to use it.

It still amazes me when we fit all that stuff in the mud room, and this really comes to light when we remove it. Suddenly our mud room looks like Versailles. Heck, we could throw a party in there, there’s so much space.

While I’m sad that we didn’t get to ski that much this winter, it is nice looking forward to spring, and putting all the winter gear away really is a symbolic end to winter.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
