My daughter, Regina, called me at the office Thursday afternoon and suggested we go with the girls ice skating at our local rink. I was skeptical at first…. after all, I hadn’t skated in like 30 years! But I’m always game for some fun.
It was snowing outside, and I was worried a bit about her driving down, but by then the skies cleared. I have a week pass for the tram so I just hopped on the next one that went to the rink.
At first I thought I’d be hanging on the wall the whole time, but soon I actually got back into the groove of skating! Regina was the same way.
Tamara has a natural talent for it, but then she’s already good at inline skating. Every time she slipped and fell, she just got up and laughed!
Emely? Well… she still needs LOTS of practice! She had a little “friend” to help her….
This weekend they were expecting terrible blizzards, with 30 cm (12 inches) to 50 cm new snow! It wass expected to get chaotic, especially since most of the cities have already used up most of their salt reserves, and it did. The last time we had such weather was in 1978/1979!
