|The temperatures seem stuck at 43 degrees the past couple weeks|
The ski swap last week, an annual tradition in the Homer High School commons, was relatively deserted. Normally it is wall-to-wall jam packed humanity, but there were only a handful of folks actually buying, and the rest were there selling or socializing. I know the skiers are getting cranky for snow: one can only enjoy so much dry-land training. I'm sure it will come, but someone said the Farmer's Almanac predicts a winter like last winter, which was scarce on snow and temperatures in the 30's: borderline enough to be snow sometimes but rain often enough. Personally, I'd rather have snow all winter than this borderline which gives us ice, ice, ice (the bane of my life in Homer: I am so tired of driving on ice!).
I like to ski, but if I have to go for hikes I'll do that. Complaining isn't going to make the weather better...but I'll admit I love some warmth and sunshine too.
