Yesterday morning I woke early and looked out the window. Yea!! Lots of new snow on the lawn in front of our building. So I dressed quickly and went outside to do some snow stomp art. I knew the temperatures would rise this coming weekend, and that made me think of surfing. The street lamps were still on, and the sun hadn't risen yet.
As I said, I expected the image wouldn't last very long because the forecast says we will have temperatures up over 10C (50F)* this weekend. But I hadn't counted on the wind blowing so much of the snow away.
It did, though, so I went out about 10 am to fix it up a bit.
The wind continued, though. I figured the whole thing would be gone by evening, but here's a photo I took of the work at about 11pm last night:
The writing was gone, but the surfer dude in the pipeline survived in great shape!
And he is still there this morning!
But he is fading fast.
True story: I taught at the University of Hawaii in the autumn of 1986. I regularly went to the beach between classes and learned to surf. Students in my afternoon law & economics course would laugh and point at the sand on my feet "We know where you were!"
I never was very good at surfing, but it was fun and it was great upper body exercise. We also spent a LOT of time at Bellows beach using body boards and catching waves. So much fun!
