no one likes a sleep-deprived ski princess

I will be leaving for West Virginia tonight for some more snowboarding with two rugby pals at Snowshoe Mountain. Now if the snow out there is as crappy as it was in PA, I'm giving up on the entire East Coast snow scene. However, considering how much snow we got around here, much of it should have stuck out there. The snow report from there this week says they got 29" since Monday, so it looks promising.

The Princess Suite for My Royal Self was a bit pricey, but my Spidey-Sense went off when I thought back on some past rugby trips with these two guys. Both are notorious Thunder Snorers, and I'm a light sleeper. Not a good combination. I promised them they would die in their sleep if I had to share a room with them. No one likes a cranky, sleep-deprived Princess.

Good news at work: I will be moving to a room with windows that open to the outside air flow, and SUNLIGHT! Blessed sunlight, which should help improve my mood considerably. I've been in a bit of a funk all winter. Getting back to working out regularly would help too, and there's no excuse for that. No more messin' around next week, this time I mean it!

Remember how much temperature can affect the snow quality. The snow DC got last week was decent ski snow, in DC, because it was light and fluffy thanks to the low but not too low temperature. It was good powder snow, requiring a bit more effort to make into snowballs than warmer snow.

Hopefully you'll have below freezing all weekend, plus a good excuse to plead coldness and seek out another hot body.

"No more messin' around next week, this time I mean it!"

Funny, that's exactly what I said last week too!

An office with actual windows and sunlight...I envy you so much! I'm stuck in a small basement office with no windows, little ventilation and half a dozen file servers.

I think you'll have better luck further north - like Vermont or upstate NY. Of course, that means more driving.

Man, do you realize how long it takes to DRVIE to Snowshoe? You could almost be in Summit County, CO by then.
