We had a snow day here today, as most of the school districts in the region—mine included—cancelled classes. That meant that I could sleep in and just generally relax. And that’s all good.
The downside was that I had to spend a good hour clearing the driveway of six inches of snow. I do it the old fashioned way—with a shovel. It’s good exercise, and you can really work up a sweat. Unfortunately, as the temperature is hovering at around twelve degrees, and the wind is blowing stiffly, that left me frozen to the bone.
Fortunately, I have a cure: a mug of hot cider fortified with a shot of Myers Dark Rum.
I can’t wait until spring.

Get yourself to the Patagonia web site. http//www.patagonia.com and buy some of the best all activity thermal underwear known to man. Golf, shoveling, walking, skiing, running and cigar smoking are all made more comfortable wearing their thermal layering system. You may sweat, but you will never be cold again.
Ya, golf season sure seems a long ways off…even the heated driving ranges aroundhere are snowed out.
