More Like Seattle than Minneapolis
Today is December 31st and it is 38 degrees outside. As we walked to my car from the hockey rink after practice today (yes, it was only practice, not a game as I anticipated yesterday), we got caught in a downpour. A friggin' downpour in December...unbelieveable. Where have the days of snow and cold gone? We should be skating outside and sliding down hills in sleds, but instead we are donning raincoats and cleaning out gutters. The picture above is of my backyard, usually the home of a pretty good sledding hill, but now I may have to mow it by the end of the week.
Anaheim Ducks in town tonight, which is probably fitting since this weather is only fit for ducks. I think we're catching Anaheim at the right time with both of their usual goalies hurt. Roy out.
