As I sit on the couch this morning with the dog sleeping peacefully beside me, I can hear the howling of the wind, snow plows going along the road and peeking out the back door… a small snow drift. Insert – sigh!!
You see, for the past couple of weeks we’ve had temperatures in my area of Ontario pushing into the double digits. However, Mother nature can be fickle at times. She likes to see how goofy we get when she plays the “winter is over – here comes spring card.”
But, there is light at the end of the tunnel my friends.
The Outdoor Adventure Show in Toronto, brought 1000’s out to drool over the latest in outdoor gear; to listen to speakers; and the best part to kick-start or finalize planning for this summers adventures. Many fellow outdoor enthusiasts are even right now; sipping a coffee and putting pen to paper; filling out their calendars with canoe and kayaking trips, backpacking adventures and every other outdoor experience conceivable to mankind.
So, this is my ode to better weather and fantastic adventures ahead. Don’t lose faith my friends. Today, is but a small blip on the radar. There are warmer temperatures and sunny days just around the corner that will lead us into a kaleidoscope of trips, outings and “incidents”to keep us blogging all next winter.
Heck, put your boots on and get dressed and head out TODAY! Today is only limited by your imagination and clothing choices.
Let’s not be like this fella’, who chose to sit around and wait for the perfect conditions.
Although, those arms on his chair look like a perfect spot to balance a cold beer.
