Driving home this past Monday, I saw a scene befitting this winter season.
I’d like to report that it was a cross-country skier. What I saw, though, was not a skier but a golfer — hitting practice balls off one of the tees at the college golf course.
That’s all you need to know about what kind of winter it’s been for skiers and snowboarders.
Those of us who look forward to winter have grown accustomed to mild Novembers and Decembers. But it’s been many years since we’ve seen such a slow start to the ski season.
