Is it snowing up top; or rain? Wait and see in the morning.
Anyway, Bob and I are off to a friend's place (Walter and Margaret) here on the hill for "Panorama New Year's Eve Recovery Party" and Wine and Cheese. Don't feed the dog! Poor Mickey. He is a cute 16 year old pup with allergies, who is blind and wobbly.

We have met so many wonderful people here on the mountain. It will be difficult to leave them behind when we return home, just as it was difficult to leave our friends and family when we left on our adventure west. It is astonishing how small our planet is when you start meeting people from all over this country and the world. Yesterday (in the T Bar) having a small celebration with Cindy and Brian and toast their 25th wedding anniversary, we discovered they are best friends with a couple from Caledonia:
Brian and Heather Gagnon. We have know these people for many years. Small world! Walter and Margaret are from Calgary. He is a geologist and has travelled abroad. Mike and Linda are from North Bay and live here 6 months out of the year and ski and in the summer, they ride their motorcycle. Yes, they have been to Port Dover on Friday the 13th, a big biker day on Lake Erie.
The rain has finally stopped and the temperature has begun to fall. Best news so far. Gear up and off I go to play with the Mountain Friends. Bob has his Physio appointment as I am writing this post. Today he will hopefully be released from captivity and be allowed to join me in the next few days.

The icing on the cake is when I returned home and knowing Bob can now join me in the fun.
He has some catching up to do now that I have 8 ski days more than him! No, you can't trip me on the hill or hide my long undies! 12 more whiffy free days to go before the wash.
It is snowing heavily and that means more powder and less ice. Let's see what tomorrow brings!
