Quiet NYE

December 31, 2021

There was no new snow and it’s still very cold and the mountain is even more full of holiday visitors than it was yesterday, so I’ve stayed snug in my house all day. I looked out at the bluebird sky and watched the tiny skiers make turns down the runs, shedding plumes of “cold smoke” behind them as they went.

Seeing those turns, I almost wanted to be out there, too, but then I looked at the very many vehicles I could see out my window and went “nope, too many folks out there”. The clear the view across the valley was a nice distraction from all the cars, I must say.

Now I’m thinking about what to make for dinner and how soon people will start shooting off fireworks and whether I will be up when 2022 arrives in this time zone or tucked in bed reading, as I often am at midnight.
