|20 minutes deep into cleaning off my car|
A few runners made a plan to meet at noon at North Park, as they're known for their quick snow removal efforts. But, come 10AM it was still snowing hard & the roads were not yet plowed, so that run got bagged as well.
Around noon I finally braved the outdoors to clean off my car (BTW, what a time to realize I do NOT own a snow shovel...oops) & head out for the day. My house got probably 6 - 8" whereas the BF, 20 minutes north got only 2 - 4".
Once I got to the BF's house we downed a pot of coffee & put on an episode of Making a Murderer on Netflix. Anyone else watching this? Don't spoil it. We're only 3 episodes deep. Dinner was with the "in-laws" & company before we headed out with a few friends to celebrate a birthday.
Sunday we met up with our friends Ryan & Rachael for some winter hiking. We met them at Duff Park, a new to me area. The trails were impeccably well marked, both at intersections & well blazed along the way. Something I very much appreciated.

While the BF & I are not novice hikers by any means, and I would consider myself to be in fairly good shape, Ryan & Rachael put us to shame. As the BF & I wheezed our way up hills through the almost FOOT of snow, they each plodded along beside us talking like it was nothing.
After we got back to the cars we headed to nearby Pleasant Valley Park for another mile or two of hiking before calling it a day & heading to a late lunch at North Park Lounge, an originally local sports bar that has grown into a small chain.
While you'll still never hear me cheering when the forecast calls for snow, I definitely had a fun time traipsing through it Sunday. A reminder that it's not all bad.
Per usual, I'm linking up with HoHo Runs & MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap, thanks for hosting ladies!
