Day 115 - Wine

Thought of the day: I love Colorado.  The one thing I don't like about it is the brutal wind in the winter.  In the worst time, a strong and chilly wind can roar on and on for a week.  If you are unlucky enough to be caught in a wind storm in Eldora, your day is pretty much ruined, at least as far as skiing is concerned.  It has nothing like the comforting sound of rain drops hitting your roof, or the pleasant sight of snow flakes floating in the sky, or the refreshing scent of a summer afternoon thunderstorm, a brutal winter wind is just that - a brutal winter wind.  You stay out of its way.  And you can't even escape it entirely inside the house, as it cries and screams into your ears all night long.  Luckily, our house is pretty solidly built, so we don't usually feel shakes or vibrations.  And when we wake up in the morning, the chance is that we will still have a roof above our head.

Nothing drowns out the howling wind better than a little glass of wine...
