NOW, it’s officially winter

18 Jan

People have different ways of marking the start of winter.

white-christmas

First snowfall.

Thanksgiving.

Winter solstice.

For me, it’s all of those things. But it never feels like winter until…

Oh hockey. I’ve missed you. The NHL lockout has been extremely painful. A few of my friends have missed it too, and it’s been nice to commiserate with them as they’ve written about it here and here.

The lockout is finally over. The NHL season (as short as it is this year – 48 games) starts this weekend. And the MN Wild open this weekend at home.

Ahhhh. Life is complete again.

    Really. I would never have guessed you were a hockey fan. Glad your winter is complete. 🙂

      Oh yes! I guess it’s just never come up in our conversations. But I love sports, hockey in particular. 🙂
