Frozen Heights of Bitterness

Snow finally came to Breckenridge this week after weeks of warmth, worry and woe as to what the 
season might hold for anyone keen enough to board a plank or two to feel that thrill of crisp
exhilaration smack the face and burn through the chilly breeze on the way down a slope.

Careful what you wish for!

Mountain peaks disappeared under heavy snow clouds. The thermometer dropped to ZERO - Fahrenheit
and didn't hover too far ahead from that through the day.  Throw in a decent wind chill factor 
and exhilaration turned to exfoliation of any exposed flesh. 

And no-one complains because this is proper weather out the in high mountain country at this 
time of year.  Just in time for the Dew Tour which runs from Dec 13 - 16 which should be
great fun.  I can say that as a spectator, albeit one who has already left town and will be
watching on either TV or Live Stream in absolute awe of the crazy heights these people reach.

Keep warm, or cool, wherever you happen to be! 

(I have at last discovered the warming ways of whiskey.  This is a good thing, isn't it?)
