excuse the friday post on sunday. blogger has been cruel to me, not letting me on since last thursday-but i found a plug-in and we made up. (:
way back when new england had normal, wintry, blustery and snow filled winters, my husband and i lived there.
this winter has been woeful according to all my friends and family who reside there. they have had temperatures in the 40's and 50's with not a speck of snow all season. my friend amy told me this evening on the phone that they havent taken the snowmachine out of the garage for 2 years.
i learned to ski with my grandmother and mom in millinocket, that little mill town i mentioned many posts earlier. i was small, (still am) and the snowbanks always seemed huge. the ski trails followed the snowmobile tracks through the woods for miles and miles.
one of the things i am enjoying most about being here in alaska is heading to the woods on my skis. it has given me opportunity to reminisce about these ski outings and relive some of the memories that were made with some of my favorite people.
